In this guide, we will see how to open an ASPX file on your computer and easily convert it to PDF from your computer with a program and online.
When we work with our PCs it often happens to find various files in unknown formats or that we don't know how to open because we don't have a specific program for that type of file. Although it looks like a problem there are really practical solutions to open these file types.
One of these files is ASPX which is generated by ASP.NET which can be opened with applications like Visual Studio or Visual Web Developer, but we don't always have the possibility to install these types of programs in our operating systems, either for licensing costs or because it's not something we use frequently.
But then how to open an ASPX file and convert it into a PDF format? One of the methods in which we can view an ASPX file is by dragging the file into the address bar of any of our browsers like Google Chrome, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, among others, to see its contents since ASPX is an Internet media file.
How to convert ASPX format to PDF with the browser
An ASPX file is a Web page file, generated by a server, which can contain VBScript and other code.
These file formats are generally created using Microsoft Visual Web Developer and were designed for use with the Microsoft ASP.NET work platform.
Because of their actions and uses, these files are also known as .NET Web Forms.
Now, when we try to open any aspx file by double clicking on it, in this case in Windows 10, a new window will appear asking us which program we mean the file with.
There we have to look for some applications that allow us to open this type of file. We can click on the option Other applications to find the preferred browser. In this way, this type of file will always be opened with our browser.
Once this is defined, we will open the aspx file in the selected browser and use the Ctrl + P keys to open the print window.
There we click on the Destination button to select the Save as PDF option.
Click the Save button to save and convert the ASPX file to PDF.
