how to open PDF in browser from link on website.
I went to the same site via phone,computer, and Ipad...and my ipad in the chrome browser opened it up in a new tab preferred method. On computer using chrome opened in same tab which is ok. But my phone (moto x) just downloaded it. Even if i hold the link for menu, and click open in new tab. it opened a new tab Still just downloads and closes the new tab out. I also tried chrome beta with no luck. My phone doesn't tell me how to open it or what i needed to do next to see it after its downloaded either. (not intuitive enough) Finally saw in notification and clicked there to get a list of apps, which the browser is not listed. This PDF isn't something that I want to keep i just want to view it. and then close the page /tab and be on my way.
Lastly it downloads this file to my phone. How does one find where it put the bogus file that i didn't want to save in the first place, so i can delete it?
Yes I know i could get a better experience probably using some third party apps but i just want it to work at the moment with ease. As my need grow then I'll look for something to fulfill those needs.
Please some android guru helps me
Re: how to open PDF in browser from link on website.
Welcome to Android Central! Chrome for Android doesn't have the ability to display PDFs. When you click on a PDF link, it will download to the Downloads folder. You can find it by swiping down the Notification shade and tapping on the download (or by opening the Downloads app from your App Drawer). You may then be prompted to select an app to open the PDF, and then be given the option of making that the default every time, or just once. There are lots of PDF viewers available, including QuickOffice, which is one of Google's office productivity suites (the one that can directly edit Microsoft Office documents).
