How to Save and Export ChatGPT Conversations

ChatGPT took the world by storm with its ability to generate text using trained language models. While you can save the conversations right inside the ChatGPT webapp, there is no way to export ChatGPT conversations in a way that you can download and share with the world. Users have resorted to screenshots which is ineffective. But now, there is a way to export ChatGPT conversations using a simple utility tool.

How to Save and Continue ChatGPT Conversations

Before we begin with how to export ChatGPT conversations, first understand how we can save them in the ChatGPT app. If you know that part, skip to the next section.

All recent ChatGPT conversations are saved in the left sidebar. Simply select a conversation to continue it.

The first question you ask in the conversation will be the name of the conversation. However, if you can easily change that. Select a conversation and click on the pencil icon (edit button) to give a new name. Then click on the tick mark to save it.

How to Export ChatGPT Conversations

Most users are either copying the conversation or taking screenshots depending on what they want to do with it. Copying text is useful if you want to save it in the notes app and taking screenshots is easier if you want to post on social media apps like Twitter.

However, ShareGPT, a Chromium (supports Chrome, Edge, Brave, etc. built on Chromium engine) browser extension developed by Steven Tey, will create a shareable URL of the entire conversation with ChatGPT within seconds that you can now export. The source code is available on GitHub which means it is open-source and the extension is available on Chrome Web Store.

1. Install the Chrome extension like you do by clicking on the Add to Chrome button.
