PDFs don't open automatically in Chrome

This topic is a known issue we're working to fix. If you want, you can report the issue: Click More More and then Help and then Report an issue. Add details to help us fix it faster.

You can normally open PDFs automatically in Chrome by clicking on the file you want to see. If your PDFs are downloading instead of opening automatically in Chrome, Chrome PDF viewer may have been turned off.

Turn on Chrome PDF viewer
On your computer, open Chrome.
Go to chrome://plugins.
Under "Chrome PDF Viewer," click Enable PDF viewing.
Chrome will now open PDFs automatically when you click on them.

You also don't have full control over what the user does in the browser.  The user can set PDFs to download or open directly and that would override your preferences.

Same user using same browser to access the PDF link on another site it will open in reader

Be careful, PDF plugins seem to be , in my experience, only slightly better coded than image plugins.
