How do I open a file in a new tab rather than having to download

  • Hi can any one tell me how to open a file in a new tab rather than having to download it to Mac.

    I have download stuff to an online system we use at university. On chrome I can open the file in a new tab, however I can't do this on the latest opera version, it only allows me to download which I don't want to do. Any idea if there is a solution to this ?

    I use an old version of opera for lots of stuff, but this version doesn't work with the system they use at university at all - you can't read anything, it appears as gobboldy gook !

    Thanks

  • You have to download and then open. A feature which permits you to open, without downloading, is not yet available.
