Remember PDF position disable option

New Contributor

Recently, Edge implemented an option so that when you open a previosuly opened pdf, it will remember position and zoom of the last time. See this (Microsoft Edge Remember where you left off in PDFs) . This is useful but not always, so i would like an option to disable this option. It can be annoying when comparing two files when making a pdf work.

Hey there @serrgiofdezz!


You can head over to edge://settings/content/pdfDocuments from the address bar and toggle the PDF view settings ("Open PDFs to last viewed location when you reopen files") off.

Thank you, really useful!

Was that a new option? I remember checking an option for that before posting...
It's a bit hidden in the site permissions, I had to search for it to remember where it was specifically. Glad it's the setting you're looking for though! =)
