Trouble Viewing PDFs

Issue/Question

I am unable to view PDFs within Chrome. I see the message:

Chrome PDF Viewer (Disabled by enterprise policy)

Environment

  • Google Chrome

Cause

The built-in Chrome PDF viewer is disabled.

Resolution

The PDF can be downloaded and opened in a dedicated PDF reader, such as Adobe Reader.

Alternately, enable the Chrome PDF reader:

  1. Open the  menu from the top right.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Click Show advanced settings...
  4. In the Privacy section, select Content settings...
  5. Scroll to the bottom, under PDF Documents, uncheck “Open PDF files in the default PDF viewer application.”
