How to view PDFs with Chrome

Chrome and Acrobat are no longer compatible and may result in websites stating a user needs to update their Adobe Acrobat to view a PDF.

Web browsers have preferences that enable viewing a PDF in Adobe.

To download and open a PDF with Chrome, do the following:
  1. In Chrome, go to the “Menu”  icon, then choose “Settings“.
  2. Scroll to the bottom and select “Advanced“.
  3. In the “Privacy and Security” section, select “Content settings“.
  4. Scroll down and select “PDF documents“, then switch it to “On“.
PDF files will download in Chrome just like any other file. You can select the downloaded file at the bottom of the window, then choose “Open”, then the file will open in a separate window.
