This article provides up to date information on how to get PDF Forms and Adobe Reader working on your computer.
By default, Chrome uses a built-in PDF viewer to open PDFs. Google Chrome has a built-in PDF viewer enabled by default. When you click a PDF link on the web, the file opens directly in your browser window.
The following controls are available in the lower-right area of the browser window:
If you've disabled the built-in PDF viewer, Chrome will use Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader to display PDFs.
Adobe Reader runs inside Chrome as a NPAPI (Netscape Plugin API) plugin. Google is phasing out support for NPAPI plugins from the Chrome browser. Since April 2015 (Chrome 42) NPAPI plugins have been disabled by default. It is possible to re-enable them via an override however from September 2015 (Chrome 45) this override will be removed and NPAPI support will be permanently removed from Chrome.
To re-enable NPAPI:
Alternatively, you can set any of the plugin Enterprise policies, such as EnabledPlugins or PluginsAllowedForUrls, which temporarily re-enable NPAPI support.
After NPAPI support is removed from Chrome, if you need to use Adobe Reader inside a browser, you must use another browser until a replacement plugin becomes available for Chrome.
If you have enabled both NPAPI support and either the Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader plugin, but you are still experiencing problems please follow the following steps.
First check if the issue is specific to Chrome. Try opening PDFs in another browser on your computer, such as Firefox. If you experience similar problems viewing PDFs in another browser, the issue is likely not related to Chrome, so you need to visit the Adobe support site for additional help.
If you are still having issues viewing PDFs and it is specific to Chrome, try the following solutions in the order that they arere listed:
Follow the instructions below to confirm that either Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat is configured to display PDFs in the browser.
Only one of the programs should be set to preview PDFs in the browser, not both.
If you have both Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat installed, they may conflict with each other. Try uninstalling one of the programs.
Next, learn how to view PDF documents in Firefox.
