If you want to print web page without ads, there are 4 options you can choose from: manually remove ads, take advantage of the Print options, switch to the reader view, and use the third-party services. There will be 4 separate brief introductions of each solution. Check them in the remaining part.

Way 1: Manually Remove Ads

Basically, you can remove the ads manually before printing the aimed webpage. Although this task is time-consuming and annoying when there are a lot of ads on the webpage, it is undoubtedly an effective way. You can just click the “x” icon of each ad to remove it. Then, follow the steps above to print a webpage.

Way 2: Take Advantage of the Print Options

Sometimes, the ads are the background graphics. Luckily, most browsers support removing the background graphics in the Print settings. You can just uncheck this option and then you can print the webpage without ads.

Step 1: Go to the webpage and call up the Print options.

Step 2: Choose “Save as PDF” or “Microsoft Print to PDF” in the printer select bar. Then, extend “More settings” and uncheck “Background Graphics” in “Options”.

Way 3: Switch to Reader View

When you switch to the reader mode on your browser, the webpage will be shown in another format that only contains texts and important images. Although it is called “reader view”, you can not only read the webpage but also print it. However, not every browser has a built-in reader view like Mozilla Firefox and Safari. If you are using the browser without a built-in reader view button, you can add an extension equipped with the ability to switch the webpage to the reader view. Then, print this webpage in reader view.

Way 4: Use the Third-party Services

With the development of technology and the blooming of the print-without-ads requirements, some extensions have been produced to print webpage without ads. You can choose a reliable and popular one to try. The extension can help you automatically remove the ads before printing a webpage.

Or, you can try an ads-blocking service. With it, ads will not be shown on the webpage which does a big favor when reading and printing a webpage. Since some browsers provide built-in ads-blocking services, you can check if your browser has or not before installing a third-party one.
