Download Page for Offline Access on Edge browser

When traveling with limited or no internet access, keeping an offline copy of a webpage is an excellent option. The offline copy of the webpage can be accessed without any internet connection with all attachments. However, we may not be able to navigate or open links that are not available offline.

I keep a copy of blog pages for further reading when traveling without the internet. If I want to access the live page, performing a hard refresh will connect the online version of the webpage. It helps me stay productive even when I am traveling.

You can also keep a copy of the page that you frequently visit for reference. It will help you in saving the network bandwidth as well. For example, a Wikipedia page of the destination or historical place you’re visiting with your family can be kept for reference and saved offline.
