In Windows, i'm happy with Google Chrome's built-in PDF Reader plugin. Even, i use it as default PDF reader for Windows.

But for some PDF's, Chrome always prompts like "Parts of this PDF document could not be displayed. Install Adobe Reader?". I don't want to use Adobe Reader (or Adobe's PDF plugin) and i don't want to be annoyed everytime i open a PDF.

So, is there a way to stop these prompts? Under the hood setting or command line switch etc.?

This question is relevant for Google Chrome 22 or lower versions. With the release of Google Chrome 23, this issue is fixed.

You won't be able to get rid of the warning. Just dismiss it when its displayed. – Ramhound Aug 3 '12 at 13:12

Based on some extensive searching, I believe that you can't get rid of the warning. I agree that it is annoying. The best that you can do is disable Chrome's built-in PDF viewer and use a different one.

Try to disable Chrome PDF Viewer going to about:plugins. Then you can install official Adobe plugin that does the same function with full PDF support.

I don't want to use any Adobe thing. I'm happy with Chrome's PDF plugin except the prompt. – Berk Demirkır Aug 3 '12 at 13:06
