IE11 and backing out from .pdf

    Windows 8.1 Pro x64 with Media Center

    I'm in Win 7 as my Win 8 tablet is charging. I also have normal behavior in IE 11 on Windows 7 with Adobe 10 browser PDF display disabled and Adobe PDF Reader and Link Helper addon disabled. Click image for larger version

    Anyways, How about resetting IE settings to defaults (don't forget to remember you current settings if you need to reapply). Then, you decide if you want the PDF to display in browser or not, If not just disable Adobe PDF reader and Link Helper after unchecking 'display in browser' setting. Test if IE behaves normally. I do highly prefer the dialog box than automatic opening of PDFs though since I've had my computer saved by that instant drive-by download PDF Trojans that comes from a harmless website.

    Yes. It's working now just the way I wanted it to. when I click on a pdf link Adobe Reader app launches and opens it without interfering with IE. I didn't reset any settings, I just disabled Adobe PDF viewer and unchecked the option to display pdfs in browser. I will see if the issue went away for good.
