Disable Microsoft Edge PDF Viewer toolbar or ammend settings

Copper Contributor



We use Edge in built PDF viewer for opening Zen report .PDF's but when page is open user's get the option to edit and insert text which is not ideal as these are sensitive documents and shouldn't be edited. Is there a way of configuring the Edge PDF viewer to either disable the toolbar or permanently check Hide all annotations so it look's greyed out for a user. I have looked at all Group poicies but nothing in there to be able to change settings on the toolbar

@AndyLewis1980 Hi!  I looked through the existing policies as well and did not see anything for this scenario. 


If you haven't had a chance yet, you can submit feature requests to the team through the browser. ("..." menu > Help and feedback > Send feedback).  Thanks! 



I need this feature too, and the reason is similar.

Sometimes, we may just want to show user pdf files through iframe or a new window. Users are expected to view them instead of operating on them, like the license file or user agreement or other things.

Chrome supports this feature, and it would be greate to see that edge can support this feature. @Kelly_Y I think I already gave feedback long time ago, but not getting any response.

@Mister-Hope How does Chrome support this feature?  Is there a Chrome specific policy?  Thanks!

Unfortunately I did not find official docs about this, only getting a acrobat reader built-in params at https://web.archive.org/web/20170814185627/http://blogs.adobe.com/pdfdevjunkie/web_designers_guide and http://www.adobe.com/content/dam/Adobe/en/devnet/acrobat/pdfs/pdf_open_parameters.pdf
