Open up adobe directly, then under one of the options, youRunning Windows 7 and IE8, how can I get IE to open PDF files outside
the browser? I already have Adobe Reader X set correctly (EDIT ->
Preferences -> UNcheck Display PDF in Browser) but when I click on a PDF
link, a window opens in IE, I hear the beep and it immediately closes.
I don't get a yellow ribbon/bar giving me a popup warning or anything.
can specify whether you want adobe to work within a broowser
window or outside it.
Once you disable adobe, the external lnk for pdfs takes over.
I use FOXIT pdf reader, which is much faster than adobe.
If you do, check its installation options, because that one
will also try to run within the browser window, but it fas an
installation button which can be cleared.
I also found an adobe plugin in my browser(firefox), which i disabled.
I keep an adobe button on my desktop, just in case something failes.
