Add this CSS to the page your creating into a PDF to remove Chrome Headless’s implemented Header and Footer.


@media print {
  @page { margin: 0; }
  body { margin: 1.6cm; }

You should format your command like below to create the PDF:

"C:\PATH\TO\CHROME\EXECUTABLE\FILE", "--headless","--disable-gpu","--print-to-pdf=" + directory path to where you want the file to go followed by the desired file name/fileName.pdf,"--no-margins", "the path to the file you want turned into a pdf"

Example 1:

C:\chrome-win/chrome --headless --disable-gpu --print-to-pdf=C:\user\fileName.pdf --no-margins C:\Projects\index.html

Example 2:

You can also test this functionality by navigating in your command line to the folder containing Chrome executable file, and running this command:

chrome --headless --disable-gpu --print-to-pdf
