Can’t Print Dropbox Links Containing PDF Documents

It seems that most of us these days are using Google Chrome and then we use Internet Explorer only if we have to. If you’ve ever received a link to a drop box to a PDF and then you view the PDF in Chrome and hit the print button at the bottom of the page and then a new tab opens to a page which receives an HTTP 404 (error code for a non-existent page).

You can either use Internet Explorer to print these links directly from within the web browser or use a simple workaround, download the file. If you download the file, you then can open it up after saving it to your computer’s hard drive and then should be able to open and print it with Adobe Reader or your preferred PDF reader.

Simply click on download, you should see the file print in the bottom left of your Chrome browser:
