Open pdf files in browser using sharepoint 2010

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I am trying to get it so that users in a site on our sharepoint server can open pdf's directly in the browser and not have to download them.  I found this article:


Option #1 looks like it sets Browser File Handling to Permissive for all sites and I only want to do it for one specific site.  So I decided to try the powershell option.  When I run powershell and put that in there (with my site url in it) I get the following error:

 The term 'Get-SPWebApplication' is not recognized as a cmdlet, function, operableprogram

Any thoughts or a way of opening the pdf in the browser?
