Hi. With the growing popularity if Chrome, I have been receiving a lot of questions related to adobe reader plug-in for chrome lately. To use adobe reader as a default viewer in Google Chrome, you first need to turn off the built-in plug-in PDF viewer of Chrome. To turn off the plug-in follow the below given steps-

1) Adobe Reader needs to be installed

2) Open the browser Google Chrome

3) Then, type about:plugins in the address bar of the browser

4) After the plug-in tab opens, scroll down to Adobe Reader>Click on enable

5) Click on plug-ins and restart the browser

You can also get a print of an electronic PDF which supports searchable text if you have adobe already installed on your PC by following the steps as given-

1) Open Google Chrome

2) Navigate to the web page to be printed

3) CTRL+P opens the print review window of Chrome

4) There will an option saying “print using system dialog” which needs to be selected in the lower left corner of the screen.

Hope we helped.

When you install Adobe Acrobat Reader, it will also install a plug-in for browsers to use to open online PDF files. This way, when you need to open a PDF file from a website, you don’t need to download the file and open it on your computer using a PDF reader like Adobe Acrobat Reader. The PDF file will open and load directly in your web browser.

If you are using Google Chrome and it says the plug-in is unsupported, try updating Adobe Acrobat Reader. Download the latest Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and install. Make sure “Install the Acrobat Reader Chrome Extension” is checked. Pay attention to the “Optional offers” section before downloading to avoid downloading unnecessary software. Uncheck the boxes if you don’t need them.

If this doesn’t work, update Google Chrome to the latest. Download the latest standalone installer for Google Chrome. The latest version at the moment, Google Chrome 78.0.3904.108, supports Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10. Windows XP and Windows Vista are no longer supported. If the problem continues, use a different browser like Mozilla Firefox, Opera, or SeaMonkey.
