  • Patent number: 8862990
    Abstract: According to the present invention, even if information on a page displayed on a browser browsed by a user shifts to another page, the user can select and store a necessary page. An information processing apparatus according to the present invention generates, when displaying information obtained via a network on a display unit, print information of the information displayed on the display unit based on a print instruction from the browser, and further stores the generated print information in a storage unit. When a destination from which the information is obtained is different from a just primarily preceding destination, the display unit displays a list of the information stored in the storage unit.
