Find it is pretty easy to open PDF in Chrome, but do not know how to save the opened PDF file in Google Chrome, for there is no download or save button? Or after you perform the saving action, only to find the saved PDF files are broken? Actually Google Chrome has a built-in PDF viewer and a PDF printer, which enables you to save PDF in Chrome with two or three clicks. Here in the following are two ways to save PDF in Chrome.
Note: If the Chrome you're using is the latest one or any version that after Chrome version 12.0, then you can directly save PDF by right-clicking on the PDF and selecting the "Save as" or "Print" option. And then you can follow the prompts to save the PDF file. To learn what version your Chrome is, please type "about: version" (without the quotes) in the address bar in Chrome and press Enter. If you're using an old version of Chrome, follow me.
We have mentioned that it is quite easy to save PDF in Mac by using the Print Command. Now it is the same with Google Chrome. Click the PDF link to open PDF files in Chrome and then right-click on the PDF to reveal the Print command. See the "Print" option? Click on it. In the pop-up, in the destination area, select Print to PDF and then click Print. That's it!
The built-in PDF Viewer in Google Chrome is enabled by default. Whenever you find a PDF at the web, you can click to open it in your browser window with the default PDF Viewer. After this, you could see controls, including the Save icon, are available in the lower-right area of the browser window. Click the Save icon to save the PDF from Chrome.
If you do not see these controls after you open a PDF in Chrome, move your cursor on the PDF file to reveal the controls. If it still does not work, then right-click to reveal the "Save as" option to save the PDF.
If you still cannot see the "Save as", then you need to disable the PDF Viewer and revert to Adobe Reader. By doing this, type "about plugins"(without the quotes) in the address bar in Chrome and press Enter. From the plug-in list, you should disable Chrome PDF Viewer and Enable Adobe Reader. Chrome plug-in Adobe Reader allows you to open and save PDF files.
After you save PDF to your computer, you might need to edit PDF files, annotate PDF files, transfer PDF to word document, iPad, iPhone/iPod touch, Samsung phones, etc. Or just read them on Wondershare PDFelement - PDF Editor.
If you want to add PDF texts, just open your PDF and go to the "Edit" tab, you'll see there is an option named "Add Text". Click anywhere you want to put the text in and type the texts into the text box.
If you want to edit PDF texts, you need to click the "Edit" button on the upper left to enter into the editing mode. Then you can click on anywhere you want to modify the texts.
The conversion on PDFelement is very simple. Just open the PDF files you want to convert and go to the "Home" tab, you'll see two conversion options: To Word, To Others. Choose the format you want to convert and set the options in the pop-up window. Just click "Convert" and everything is done.
