    • Printing email and web sites protected by a login…

      In most cases web pages protected by a login (requiring cookies or session IDs) cannot be directly printed.  Good examples of this are webmail services such as Google GMail, Hotmail, Yahoo Mail or UCI Webmail). To print one of these pages:

      • Use a “Print to PDF” program (such as Acrobat Standard/Pro, CutePDF or doPDF for Windows, Mac OS X has this feature built-in, Web to PDF for Android) to save the page as a PDF file on your computer/device.  Then use the “Browse/Choose File” button to upload the saved PDF as a file. §
        • Note that recent versions of Google Chrome for Windows includes a built-in feature to save web pages as PDF. (Change the Print Destination to Save as PDF)
      • If saving the web page as a PDF is absolutely not possible for whatever reason, you can try saving the page as an HTML file with your web browser and then upload that.  However, the output may not look as good as the “Print to PDF” method – your mileage will vary.

      The “Print to PDF” method also works well when trying to print from email programs (such as Microsoft Outlook & Mozilla Thunderbird) as well as any other program that is able to print.
