How to save a Web page directly to Google Drive

With the new Google Cloud Print option in Chrome, you can save any Web page as a PDF in your Drive.

A new version of Google Chrome Beta was released today, bringing deeper integration with its flagship printing service, Google Cloud Print.

The update lets you use the print dialog (Ctrl+P) to print to a Cloud Ready printer, Chrome on your phone, or to your local FedEx office. Most useful for those who use Google Drive, though, is the option to "print" directly to your Drive.

Using this feature, any Web page will be saved as a PDF to your Drive, as long as you're logged in to your Google account.

When you're on the page you want to print, hit Ctrl+P, and next to "Destination," select "Print with Google Cloud Print." A new dialog box will appear. Select "Save to Google Drive," hit "Print," and the Web page will appear as a PDF in your Drive.
