Safari - Save Web Pages

You can save an entire webpage, including all its graphics and links, or just parts of it.

  • Save text from a webpage: Drag selected text to a document or the desktop.

  • Save an image from a webpage: Drag the image to a document or the desktop, or Control-click the image, then choose Save Image to “Downloads,” Save Image As, or Add Image to Photos. Some images, such as background images, can’t be saved.

  • Save a link from a webpage: Drag the link to a document or the desktop, or Control-click the link and choose Add Link to Bookmarks or Add Link to Reading List.

  • Save an entire webpage: Choose File > Save As, then choose Format > Web Archive or Format > Page Source.

    • Web archive: Saves all graphics, and links work as long as the destination webpages are available. Web archives are useful for temporary pages, such as receipts.

    • Page source: Saves only the HTML source code. This is useful if you want to use the HTML source in a webpage of your own.

Note: Some web pages may prevent you from saving items that appear on the page.
