  • Ok, I'm using Opera v.49 on Windows 10 Enterprise. I would like to be able to view PDFs on web without downloading them. It was possible on my old PC (Win 7 and older Opera version, can't remember which one), but not on this one...I don't know which plug-ins I had on my old PC, so I don't know what should I do on this one to make it possible again. I searched the net for solution, but can't seem to find one. I searched through forum, too, but all I get is posts couple of years old.
    I don't have any plug-ins, like Chromium PDF, or Foxit (I saw them mentioned often), and search through Opera extensions didn't produce results. So...does anyone know solution for this? I work with PDFs often, so any help would be appreciated, 'cause it's a hassle to download every file, if I can view them on the web first, and then decide if I want to download them or not.

  • When I visit this pdf for example, it opens in Opera's built-in pdf viewer. Then, if I want, I can save it.

    That's not working for you?

  • There is an option in Settings on how to behave about the PDF files.

    Search it and and try toggle it, its default state is in opening the PDF files in the browser itself.
