Update PDF files in browser

Anjana R 156 Reputation points


Are there any methods to edit PDF files in browser when opening from SharePoint Online sites?

Came across this article - https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/sharepoint/edit-pdf-in-sharepoint-online/m-p/211191

And noticed some recommendations to use an add-in - Adobe Acrobat for M365. in above article. Whether this will help in editing, may be with a subscription?

Any other recommended options?

    Hi @Anjana R ,

    According to the article you provided, Adobe Acrobat for Microsoft 365 seems to be a great solution to update PDF files in browser.


    As IE is not supported, now we could view SharePoint files with File Explorer in Microsoft Edge. You could open PDF files in file explorer as a workaround if you have Adobe DC and PDF files are set to open with Adobe DC.

    For Reference: View SharePoint files with File Explorer in Microsoft Edge
