To enable or disable the automatic PDF downloading feature in Google Chrome, follow these steps:

  1. Open Google Chrome on your computer.
  2. In the address bar, type "chrome://settings/content/pdfDocuments" and press Enter.
  3. You will be directed to the PDF documents settings page.
  4. To enable automatic PDF downloads, toggle the switch next to "Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome" to the On position. The switch will turn blue.
  5. To disable automatic PDF downloads, toggle the switch next to "Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome" to the Off position. The switch will turn grey.


Once you have made your desired selection, you can close the settings tab. The changes will be saved automatically, and Chrome will now follow your chosen behavior for handling PDF files.
