Turning off automatic downloads

  • Hi there,

    whenever I want Opera to open a pdf-document as a tab or window, it just downloads it instead. Is there any way of turning that off?

  • If you want to open .pdf documents in your browser, you can either download Adobe Reader (you might need to enable a plugin at opera://plugins, not sure) or install the extension PDF Viewer in your browser.

    Furthermore, if you wish Opera not to download files without your permission, open Opera Settings (opera://settings) and tick the box that says Opera should ask you where to save each file that is downloaded.

  • Hey, thanks a lot buddy, works now!
