Can I remove the Download option on the Files?

I have added PDFs documents to my course files; and during some wiki pages, I am linking to those PDFs. I love that I can add this coding to the HTML (https://usucourses.instructure.com/courses/##/files/######)  to an <a href> tag and the PDF will open in a new window so the students can read the PDF without leaving the course. The screen shot below is what the students see.

 

However, I don't want the students to be able to download the PDF. As you can see in the screen shot, the option to download is right at the top of the screen under the title of the PDF.

 

Is there a setting that will allow the students to see the PDF in this new window, but not be able to download the PDF? How can I remove the Download option?
