See PDF attachments without saving the file
Until a couple of weeks ago, I click on the attachment and the Adobe program will open the file and after that I decided if want to save the file. Now, when I click on the attachment, I get the "Save file" screen. then I have to open Adobe and go to where the file was saved to see the attachment.
How can I see an attachment without saving it?

Open Adobe Reader, go to Edit, then Preferences. In the menu which appears, click the link to "Internet" and then in the right hand pane, remove the checkmark from "Display PDF in browser". See screenshot.
I uncheck the boxes ( Adobe/edit/preferences/ Display PDF and Allow fast ), reboot the PC and still see the "Save screen" when I download an attachment.
any other idea?
Where is the attachment? In an webmail email? If so, which webmail client are you using?
