How to view PDF files in Opera instead of it automatically downloading every file?

  • I've had this issue for months, but I can't seem to figure out how to have Opera just open PDF files to view in a tab rather than automatically downloading any pdf link I click. Any guidance would be appreciative. Thank you.

  • By default PDFs should open in Opera. Check in Opera's settings if you don't have the option to use default viewer enabled by chance.
