How to Save as a PDF in Internet Explorer

Saving a website as a PDF lets you read the contents of the site at your leisure, without being connected to the Internet. You can also create a PDF of a website to save a snapshot of the contents for your records, such as a receipt from an online merchant. Internet Explorer doesn't include an option to create a PDF of a website, but there are many free programs that let you do so.
