FOR GOOGLE CHROME USERS
Google Chrome's built-in PDF viewer makes opening PDFs easy. However, you can't email directly from the Chrome .pdf previewer.
That said, there's a simple setting change you can make in Chrome to open your .pdfs in Adobe Reader instead of Chrome's viewer
- Open Chrome and type "about:plugins" into the omnibox at the top.
- Find Chrome PDF Viewer in the list and click the Disable link to prevent PDFs from loading within Chrome.
Now you can open PDFs with Adobe's reader you have installed on your computer. And if you ever change your mind, the option will be in the same place with an "Enable" link to bring it back.
If you don't have Adobe Reader installed on your computer, you can install it directly from here:
FOR MOZILLA FIREFOX USERS
To switch from the built-in PDF viewer to another PDF viewer:
Click the menu button and choose .
- Select the panel.
- Find Portable Document Format (PDF) in the list and click on it to select it.
- Click on the drop-down arrow in the Action column for the above entry and select the PDF viewer you wish to use.
Note: If you want to view PDF files in Firefox using a plugin, instead of in an external PDF reader application, select Use PDF reader name (in Firefox).
Close the about:preferences page. Any changes you've made will automatically be saved.
