Have you had problems viewing pdf files from our site and other websites with Google Chrome recently?

Google have changed their rules about which plugins they will allow to work with its browser.  As a consequence you may get rubbish when you try and open a pdf file.

There is a work around.

Right click on the link to the pdf file and select "Save link as.."  Then save the file to your computer and open the file from there.

Alternatively, as John suggests, use Microsoft Edge or Firefox.





I use Google Chrome as my default browser but, for SSPS website, I use Microsoft Edge so that I do not have to go through the saving process to read a pdf.  (all skills nights files are also pdf).  Firefox is another that lets you read without saving.....john
