    Opening PDFs in IE9

    Is there no way to set up IE9 to just open PDF files without a prompt? I cannot believe that there isn't a way to at least have files on your drive open without warning every time. Isn't there a safe list or some such?

    Both Chrome and Firefox open PDF files straight away. Can' IE be set up to do it too?

    Einstein is the one who said that insanity is asking the same question but expecting different answers. Does that count with software and computers since the software changes?

    I'm not sure it really addresses the security issue that appears to be the concern here, but I'll take a look. ,.

    Thanks,

    The only other thing,I can think of would be.Once you have IE open,Click on Tools,Manage addons.Then make sure Toolbars & Extensions is highlighted.Below you will see SHOW;click on the Drop down menu,Highlight;Run without permission.Make sure the,Adobe PDF Reader status is Enabled.

    I prefer PDF's to open outside the Browser (directly into Adobe's app or Foxit's PDF reader) but this does not seem to happen within IE9 or the latest Google Chrome (14.0.835.202 m).

    Only if you 'save' them and then open, will they open outside a browser.

    If you check your PDF program (in my case Adobe Pro 9) there may be an option under internet that says Open PDF in browser or words to that effect. If you uncheck it will cause the files to open in your default pdf viewer.

    Works for me with latest IE9, ie PDFs open in my reader. It's probably a file association problem, check here...
    Control Panel\Programs\Default Programs\Set Associations
    ...in Win7 to see what PDF is assigned to. Click on it and use the "Change Program" button top-right if necessary.
