Save PDFs from Chrome Again

If you suddenly lose the ability to save a PDF from your web browser, the problem may be related to add-ins you have installed. When a PDF file is viewed in Chrome, you should be able to right click on it and save it as a PDF. If you are prompted to save it as a html file, and can't change the type, look for an error listed in the upper right:

Go to the list of extensions in Chrome, by entering 'chrome://extensions' in the address bar.

If you have multiple add-ins for viewing or editing PDF files, turn one of them off, and re-launch the browser. This may give you back the ability to save PDF files from Chrome again.
