The browser print functions do not provide a condensed compact document.
I am seeking a Web tool where I would enter a URL and be returned all the text and pictures from All pages  on that site,
This text & pictures would be used for printing & for easy reading when away from devices.
Also to put the text into a word doc for further analysis & processing.
It will Strip out (filter) all html & extraneous spacing.
For instance I am investigating a company & instead  of plowing through all of their pages of fancy Graphics, it would be nice to have just the facts from the websites pages.

I have used Offline explorer for a decade+.
Exellent program and the best customer support I have encountered.

Follow this example after installing Offline explorer (it has a 30 unrestricted trial).

Example

On the first picture. There is a menu to the left side I have marked in red.
Un check the files you do not want to save.

In your case leave images checked and  Under "User defined"  on the same menu
add the extension for the files you want to save.

Experiment a bit I'll try to get to any questions you have.,

HTtrack is a well established open-source website scraping tool .... ideal for offline browsing.
You choose the depth (levels) that you want to scrape/store, whether you want to store graphics, external links etc.
