How to Save ChatGPT Conversation as PDF [2 Simple Methods Explained]

ChatGPT is a cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) tool that allows users to generate, summarize, translate, and explain text with just a few simple prompts. As this tool becomes more widely used in a variety of industries, the importance of preserving and sharing these conversations becomes more significant.

Read on to learn how to save ChatGPT conversation as PDF document on both Windows and Mac devices, with two different methods. We'll explore how to customize, compress, and convert your PDF to get it presentation or preservation-ready!

Method One: How to Save ChatGPT Conversation as PDF Directly

You'll only be able to view previous ChatGPT conversations if you have an internet connection because they're only accessible on the ChatGPT web app. If you need access to the conversations offline, then you can export them to PDF format in just a few clicks.

Follow these steps:

  1. Open your web browser and visit ChatGPT. Open the conversation that you need to save from the panel on the left side of the screen. Chats are automatically saved and labeled here so that you can identify them easily when you need to.
  2. If you're on a Windows device, select the key combination 'Ctrl + P' to bring up the print dialog pop-up. To do this you can also right-click anywhere on the page and select 'Print'. If you're using a Mac, instead you'll need to press the key combination 'Command + P' to bring up the print dialog.
  3. In the pop-up, there's a field titled 'Destination'. From the drop-down list, select 'Save as PDF'. Here's where you can edit other settings that you'd like to change, like the number of pages and the page orientation. When you're ready, click 'Save'.
  4. Save the PDF document to your device by choosing a file name and location.

Now that your PDF document has been saved to your device, you can open and use it whenever you need, even without an internet connection. If you need to edit or annotate your PDF document after you've saved it, try downloading UPDF, a cutting-edge PDF editing and AI software.

Method Two: How to Save ChatGPT Conversation as PDF Using the ChatGPT Web App

ChatGPT makes it quick and easy to save their AI conversations directly on the web app. While chats do save automatically and are stored on your account, sometimes it's useful to have access to them offline. This means that users can view their history offline, keep digital records, and share and present their AI conversations with others with just a simple PDF link.

Follow these steps to export ChatGPT history to PDF using the web app:

  1. Open your browser and visit the ChatGPT website. You might need to enter your log in details if you haven't logged in for a while.
  2. Open the conversation that you want to save as a PDF from the saved chats on the left side of the screen.
  3. In the bottom left section of the page click the three dots, then select 'Settings'.
  4. In the pop-up, choose 'Data Controls' from the options on the left-hand side.
  1. Click 'Export'. Read the instructional pop-up that appears, and then select 'Confirm Export' to export your ChatGPT conversation.
  2. The exported data will be sent to your registered email address on your account. When you receive the email, select 'Download data export' and save the downloadable zip file to your device. This link to download your conversation history will expire 24 hours after you receive it.
  3. The zip file will contain your exported conversation as a HTML file.
  4. Then upload the HTML to an online converter site (such as iLovePDF, Smallpdf, etc.) to turn it into a PDF document easily.

Once you've convert your exported conversation to a PDF file, you can use UPDF - the best multi-functional software to edit, annotate, translate, convert, or summarize your text.
