Adobe Reader Plug-in in Chrome

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -



The Adobe Reader plug-in on my Google Chrome is not working. I tried re-installing the plug-in but it’s still the same. I can’t re-install Chrome because I need all the bookmarks and history. What can I do?

You could try installing Adobe Reader manually by navigating to this site;

Follow the instructions that are on the site and you should have no problem, but please note that at some point you will be prompted to close all opened browsers in order for the setup to be completed. If that doesn't work then what u could do is simple backup all your bookmarks, uninstall chrome and then re-install chrome and restore your book marks back into chrome. See link for backing up your bookmarks;!topic/chrome/K2FUB_-cx1I

Adobe Reader Plug-in in Chrome


If you are using Google Chrome and the Adobe Reader plug-in is not working properly, you don’t need to install or reinstall the plug-in manually because that plug-in comes or is included as part of the Adobe Reader application. If you want to reinstall it, just uninstall and reinstall Adobe Reader. Download the free version of Revo Uninstaller and install it.

Once installed, run Revo Uninstaller then select your Adobe Reader among the applications and click “Uninstall”. Follow the normal uninstall process. When uninstall is complete, click “Scan” to scan your computer for any leftover files and delete everything it finds. This removes everything the program created on your computer. When it is finished, close Revo Uninstaller then install Adobe Reader back.

See if this works. Try also downloading again Adobe Reader from the Adobe website. Go to Adobe Acrobat Reader DC to get the latest version for your platform. Here, select your correct operating system in “Step 1” and your preferred language in “Step 2”. In “Step 3”, select the version available to your operating system then click “Download now” on the right.

Before clicking the download button, see the optional download first. At the moment, they offer Google Chrome. If you don’t want to install Google Chrome or you already have it, uncheck it in the “Optional offer” section to exclude it from the download. Alternatively, you can download and use Foxit Reader instead which works the same way as Adobe Reader.

It also includes plug-ins for all major web browsers and for Microsoft Office Word and Microsoft Office Excel.
