Allow Downloads in Chrome

Post#1 by caseyd1020 » 01 Feb 2017, 19:25


Is it possible to allow downloads in Chrome. I have a PDF that needs to be downloaded and then opened. Right now it says "Failed - Download error". I enabled file:// and turned off my white list. I'm not sure what else to try.

Hello Casey,

Please check the "Cloud" variant as it has downloads unblocked by default. If it still wont work then 'custom build' with Adobe Reader will be necessary as in some cases PDF must be opened in external application.

Thank you.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
