All of a sudden, I started noticing that my machine (HP Probook 640 G4, Windows 10 enterprise 2016 v1607) now automatically downloads PDFs anytime I click on a link to a PDF or click to download a PDF email attachment.
- (I am using Chrome v83.0.4103.97, and files are opening automatically in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC v2018.011.20058)
Previously, the PDF would open directly in Chrome or a window would pop-up providing me an opportunity to pick the save location. I am not aware of any preferences being manually changed, and I do not believe any major updates have occurred.
How do I make PDFs no longer automatically download and instead provide me a browser window to choose my save location?
WHAT I'VE TRIED (and that has NOT worked):
Chrome > Settings > Privacy & Security > Site Settings > Additional Content Settings > PDF Documents > UNCHECK
Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome
Chrome > Settings > Advanced > Downloads > CHECK
Ask where to save each file before downloading
Acrobat > Preferences > Internet > Web browser options >
Use your browser to control viewing of PDF documents directly in the browser using Adobe Acrobat Reader or Adobe Acrobat. The following adobe product is currently available for use by browsers: AcroRd32.exe
