Using Windows 7 and want to create PDF's from webpages using Free Software.  Read up on many different options/reviews but wanted to get some feedback.  Here is one site that I took some info from because I believe it to be a good site.

http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/7-best-tools-print-pdf/

 

This is one of the Top Free-bee's that I thought were good

http://www.pdfforge.org/

 

And another

http://www.primopdf.com/

 

Maybe bc.com offers a download also, if so point me to it please.

 

Thanks, pcpunk

Firefox and Google Chrome both have an add-on to do that easily.

doPDF 7.3.398.  Avoid updating to version 8x which is bloated.  A PDF printer will convert any file to PDF system-wide, whereas a browser add-on works with the browser only.

I tried "Save as PDF" in Chrome but it did not work?  Did not see another one that had many users.  Why not tell me the one that is used for Chrome.

1. I don't need to have a printer plugged in for any of these to work right, they just print to a File or Folder as I understand?

 

Also tried "Adobe Acrobat" But that don't work without a Paid version of there other tools.

 

Have not tried Firefox yet, but yes, it does look like it has one that is well used by others.

 

Thanks, pcpunk

Thank you, will read that thoroughly, and probably use it as you know more than I about it.

Thanks for this, it worked well enough and no Addware.  Could not figure out how to use the Browser type at all, don't know what I did wrong?

I don't understand what you mean by "Browser type".  It's been a while since I use doPDF because I am hardly on Windows nowadays.  Could you post a screenshot?

Agouti, as in this suggestion, sorry if I wasn't clear.  I think I might have the answer to why this did not work but not sure.  I have all these Google Apps Disabled:

And the doPDF thing works fine, will try to use it more so don't forget how to use it but it was pretty simple.  Here is the official site though: http://www.dopdf.com/
