I want to read student attachments in a browser window. My computer preferences are set up to do it that way, but Canvas always downloads the files instead.
Hi Elsa Kramer
If you right-click the file name you can choose "Open in a new tab" in the menu that pops up.
I hope this helps,
Yes, I can choose that, but Canvas chooses to download the file instead.
I will hazard a guess that you are using Firefox, because it does that to me also, and I have tried almost every option setting I could find to make it not do that.
Hopefully, someone else will chime in with the obvious setting I have missed.
Yes, I am using Firefox. It allows me to view attachments in the browser otherwise.
I swear I have set that about 4 gazzillion times, but it always seems to revert.
Looks like it's under Applications in Firefox Preferences. I can set it up for PDF files but not for Word docs.
