Revert to Adobe PDF from Google Chrome PDF Viewer

This is a quick tip for those like me - who find the Google Chrome PDF Viewer (now activated by default in the newer Chrome versions) pretty incomplete and want the Adobe PDF plugin for the browsers back. The Chrome PDF Viewer cannot rotate pages (especially of use in case of scanned documents), doesn’t offer enough zooming options and also lacks the convenience of the Adobe Word Finder.

 

 

So to get back to good old Adobe:

 

Step 1:  In your Google Chrome Address Bar type – chrome://plugins and press Enter.

 

chromeplugins

Step 2: Locate ‘Adobe Acrobat’ and click on Enable. The Google Chrome PDF Viewer is disabled automatically.
