Workaround helper for the PDF display problem in the current Windows 10 (m) build

UP­DATE: With the March update, the PDF bug has been fixed, but if someone still needs the fix, they can still access it.

In the current build for Windows 10 (mobile) there is unfortunately an unfortunate bug with the display of PDF’s. Since PDF’s are now viewed directly via the Edge engine in the browser, it is difficult to display PDF’s on the Internet at the moment, you would have to download them first and then display them in one of the dedicated viewer apps, but unfortunately Edge for PDF links no longer offers the possibility to download them.

To work around this problem until Microsoft has solved the bug in the Edge, I have built a little helper that can solve the problem in the browser:



Download from Microsoft Store

Or if you want to do it via the browser:

Just click on the link and set the link to the start screen by clicking on the three-point menu and selecting "Attach to start".

You will also find a small instruction how the whole thing works there. :)


You are using Google Chrome...

Do you know that Google is known for not respecting your privacy and using your data without really asking for it?
For instance Chrome will scan your computer and the files you saved on it, transfers data about your internet surfing to Google and creates a extensive profile about you as a Chrome user while combining those data with all other services of Google.

Additional information can be found here: Why you should not use Google products if you can avoid it.

Because of that I highly recommend using another browser:


If my website sucks, you do not need to visit it.
Have a nice day and think about how much you have payed to visit it? Nothing...
How many ads do you see at it? None.

How much money do I earn from it? Nothing.
Does it cost me something to host it? Hell yeah.

I do not see why I should provide it to you to be insulted?
