Many of our clients have a SharePoint document library displayed in an iframe in various entities, such as accounts, contacts, projects, etc. This works great, but often one complaint is that if a pdf file is opened, there is no way to ‘go back’ and user has to navigate away from the entity.


A quick solution is to set PDF to always open in a new window. This can be done by changing the settings right in PDF.

  1. Open any pdf document, and go to Edit, then Settings:
  2. In the Internet area, uncheck the ‘display pdf in browser’ option.

This change will cause all opened pdfs from links including inside SharePoint document libraries to open in a new window.
