PDF Annotation not Launching

Hi all, thought I would share as this has been driving me nuts this afternoon (now resolved)! I had been trying to generate a pdf, but clicking on ‘view report’ was not launching a new tab and generating the pdf. I am using Chrome. Looking at my plugin settings (chrome://plugins/), the Chrome PDF viewer was greyed out with the text “disabled by enterprise policy” showing and I could not reactivate the plugin (because it was greyed). Long story short, here was the fix:

Go to settings, advanced settings, content settings, scroll all the way to the bottom and under “PDF Documents” unselect the box which says “Open PDF files in the default PDF viewer application”.

I don’t know the technical reasons behind this, I certainly didn’t turn this setting on deliberately, but it was annoying me and now it isn’t any more. Hopefully of use.
