How to Set Google Chrome as Default PDF Reader
To Set the Google Chrome as Default PDF reader, right click on any PDF document in your system. Here go to “Open with” and then select “Choose default program”. In my system, I already have Google Chrome in open with sub menu. So, I can directly open the PDF file with Google Chrome. But We want to make Google Chrome default browser. So, I also have to select “Choose Default Program.”
In the Open With dialog, select Google Chrome. If you cannot see Chrome in the list, double click on the “Other Programs” to select Chrome. If you are still not able to find this in the list, click on Browser button and then select the chrome from installation path.
After selecting Google Chrome, Click on OK button. Now all PDf files will open in Google Chrome.
If Chrome is unable to open PDF files, you need to enable the PDF viewer plugin. For this, type chrome://plugins in the address bar. And find “Chrome PDF viewer”. Is the Chrome PDF Viewer enabled? If this option is not enable, Enable it and then click on relaunch button at the bottom.
Now, you will be able to view PDF files in Goole Chrome browser. You can only read PDF files in Google Chrome. There is no option to edit PDF.
