Opening PDFs in SharePoint 2010

When trying to open a PDF file, I am prompted to save the file. I do not get the option of opening the file, I am forced to save it.


·         Open the central administration
·         Click Manage Web Applications
·         Click on the web app you want to change, and go to ‘General Settings’
·         Scroll down and reach the section called as ‘Browser File Handling’
·         Change the radio box from Strict to Permissive.
·         Click OK.
·         Settings has been successfully configured
