Google Chrome Tip: Disable PDF files from Displaying Automatically

PDF’s are simple files to launch and browse through. You can share content easily via PDF files and even access and edit them in case of need.

PDF viewers that are built in your browser applications such as Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome can come quite handy while you are browsing through online content that are PDF-based. While they are easy to use, they can often slow down your browser and also you may prefer external PDF viewers rather than the one you have on your browser. Well, if the case in hand is particularly about tackling the PDF viewer in your Google Chrome browser, you could easily disable it and continue with your browsing sessions.

Follow the tricks below to stop Chrome from displaying PDF files automatically:

  • Launch the Chrome browser
  • Open a new tab and type in “chrome://plugins” (without the quotes) into the Omnibox and hit Enter
  • This should open up the list of plug ins that you have installed
  • Scroll to the PDF plug in that would read as Chrome PDF Viewer
  • Click on the Disable option

That’s it! Hereafter, every time you’ll have to open up a PDF file, you will not have to bother preventing Chrome from automatically opening it up. You can now use your preferred PDF viewer that you have and continue browsing.
