How to open your document in Chrome
First you need to disable Chrome's built-in PDF viewer:
- If you're using Chrome v 57 or later, type chrome://settings/content/pdfDocuments into the address bar, and make sure the setting is set to download or open PDF files in a different application, instead of automatically opening them in Chrome.
- If you're using Chrome v 56 or earlier, type chrome://plugins into the address bar, then scroll down and click Disable next to Chrome PDF viewer
