Top Three Ways to Save/Export ChatGPT Conversations

ChatGPT already saves your conversation automatically in the left sidebar. However, you may want to share these conversations with others for easy access or later use or download them locally for backup purposes. In this blog, we will share how to save ChatGPT conversation as PDF or in Word form.

Part 1. Method to Save ChatGPT Threads for Future Visits

If you are someone who wants to save ChatGPT threads so that you can revisit it and continue your conversation. Then this method is for you. ChatGPT saves the conversation automatically. Using this method, you can keep your conversation in ChatGPT and start your conversation from where you left off. Using this method, you can also learn how to rename, delete, or even directly share conversations with others.

How to Save ChatGPT Threads for Future Visits

  • Open ChatGPT on your device. And start a prompt in the chatbox.
  • Once you have entered the prompt, press "enter." As ChatGPT answers your query, the chat will be visible in the left panel with a name similar to the prompt you provided. The conversation threads are all saved in this left panel in ascending order. With the one you have used mostly recently, first and then the next.
  • If you want to share, rename, or delete any conversation thread. Just drag your cursor over the conversation thread and click it using the mouse. This way, that conversation will open now, and three dots will be visible. Click on it, and you will get the option to share, rename, or delete chat. Here, select the icon based on your desired actions.

Part 2. 2 Methods to Save ChatGPT Conversation as Documents

Although ChatGPT now saves the conversation threads automatically for you to start a conversation again anytime. But sometimes, these conversation threads can be lost in the array of conversation threats automatically saved in the left panel whenever you start a new conversation. So, if you want to export your conversation as a document, these two methods below are for you.

#1 Simplest Method: Export ChatGPT Chat as PDF

This is the simplest method you can use to export your ChatGPT chat as a PDF document. Here is how to do it.

  • Open ChatGPT.
  • Go to the ChatGPT conversation you want to download.
  • Then, right-click on the mouse. You will see a bunch of options select "Print" here. A pop-up window will appear, asking you to make settings (if required). Here, go to the "Destination" button, and from the drop-down menu, select "Save as PDF."
  • Press "Save" to export the chat as PDF.

That's it. Your chat will be saved as a PDF.

Limitations Of This Consideration:

Although you can export conversation using this method, it only lets you export content, which comes in A4 one page. If you have to print the entire thread, you must save all conversations separately.

If you are looking for a way to edit your printed PDF or chat with your PDF file, then we recommend using UPDF. Its powerful OCR feature converts the printed PDF into a searchable and editable format. Its cutting-edge AI technology makes it easy to chat with your PDF or ask UPDF AI questions you want based on previous conversations. We will discuss more about UPDF in part 3 of this blog.

Save ChatGPT is an extension you will find in the web store. This tool helps you download the ChatGPT conversation threads in PDF, TXT, and MD (Markdown) file format. Here is how to use the Save ChatGPT Extension method.

How to use Save ChatGPT Extension

  • Open the ChatGPT conversation you want to export.
  • Now, from the toolbar menu, it usually appears in the top left side of the Chrome tab. Click on the Save ChatGPT extension and select your desired format for exporting the chat. (note: if the Save ChatGPT extension is not visible in the toolbar, select the "extension icon," an icon that would appear as a puzzle. And pin the Save ChatGPT extension this way now. The extension will be visible in the toolbar menu at all times.)
  • Select the Save ChatGPT extension by clicking on its toolbar icon. Choose the format in which you want to download your ChatGPT chat.
  • Once you select the format, a pop-up window will appear, asking you the location on your device where you want to save your file. That's it. Your file will download in your desired format.
