Hello pepe123456,

Some files are offered by web servers for download only rather than for viewing.

If you need to use Chrome then you could try adding some kind of 'inline disposition' extension to it:
[Solved] Adding extensions to Chrome

e.g. this one:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... fckl?hl=en

or you could switch to Firefox which has relevant addon enabled by default.

Thanks

firefox "same error" - there is no error, or warning, but pdf is not opened at all.. tried more pages with different pdf method....
using Kiosk only - at cloud is working, but i prefer to have only Kiosk (in documentation is note that "download" is enabled at Cloud...) but seems not enabled at Kiosk..
