How to Send Complete Webpages through Email

There are different ways to send a webpage to someone. One is to copy and paste the URL in the email. Another method is to copy and paste the page’s content in the body of the email.

Copying and pasting a website’s URL is quicker, but less engaging than including the entire webpage. A full webpage is attention-grabbing and can help you to quickly decide whether the information is relevant.

Here are three ways to send a complete webpage via email for sites that don’t have a built-in option of emailing a full webpage.

Send PDF

You can email a webpage as a downloadable PDF file. Here’s how.

  1. Right-click on the webpage you want to email and click Print, or simply press Ctrl + P on your desktop.
  2. On the print preview page, click on Save as PDF.
  3. Scroll all the way down and click Save.
  4. Go to Gmail and compose a new email, then attach the downloaded PDF you usually would and hit Send.

Use EmailThis

EmailThis is an extension that allows you to save and send articles you find on the web as emails. EmailThis is simple to set up and use.

After installing the extension (which is available for Chrome, Firefox, and Opera), or enabling the bookmarklet in your browser’s bookmarks, you can start saving and emailing web pages.

Save As…

You can also email a complete webpage by simply saving the complete webpage and sending it as an attachment. Here’s how.

  1. Right-click on the page of the website you want to send by email and click Save as…
  2. Retain or rename the default file name.
  3. Click Save when done.
