My company moved our shared files from one instance of Microsoft Sharepoint to another instance. Strangely, when I try to open a PDF in the new instance, Chrome downloads the PDF, while in the old instance of Sharepoint, Chrome displays the PDF in its built-in viewer. How can I make Chrome use its PDF viewer for documents in the new Sharepoint? I searched around and most questions on this site and others is about preventing the Chrome viewer. I want to ensure that it is always used.
Is the new instance a newer version? Websites have some ability to direct how files they send should be handled, e.g. they can indicate that a file should be downloaded rather than viewed. I suspect that this has changed from version to version. It might be configurable, perhaps if you asked your sharepoint administrators they could look in to it.
