A common reason PDF hyperlinks do not work in Google Chrome is the Chrome PDF Viewer. To disable:

  1. Type “about:plugins” in the Google browser and press Enter.
  2. Scroll down the plugin list and locate Chrome PDF Viewer. Click the Disable hyperlink in this section.

    Note: Chrome PDF Viewer being enabled automatically disables Adobe Reader. Enabling Adobe Reader will also automatically disable Chrome PDF Viewer.
  3. Please contact Technical Support at 1-800-985-9781 or if you continue to have problems opening PDF hyperlinks in Google Chrome.
