How To Disable PDF Viewer In Opera Browser

Opera browser by default opens all the PDF documents instead of downloading them. This can be changed so that all the accessed PDF documents are auto-downloaded to the local downloads folder.

Here is how:

Open Opera, and in the address bar, type:

 opera://settings/content

accessing opera settings


This will open the Privacy and security section. Scroll down to the Content section. Then, expand Additional content settings.
