SharePoint 2010 Won’t Open PDFs on client

To open a PDF document in a SharePoint site (instead of saving the PDF first) you need to change the web application setting:  “Web Application General Settings”.  There is a setting called Browser File Handling and by default it is set to strict.  Change this setting to “Permissive” and PDF’s open with a PDF reader on the Client.
