Hi,

I want to provide a link to a PDF file that should be opened inside IE11 (the download has got header parameter Content-Disposition: inline). When I click the link the document opens as expected in the same page and takes all space in the page.

The problem is now, how do I navigate back from the PDF to the first page? I am using a touch screen and full screen mode (F11 - no navigation buttons, menus, etc. visible). The "swipe-left" gesture - which is usally used to navigate back in the browser - is overriden by PDF plugin and makes me navigate only inside the PDF. I would like to navagate inside the Browser to go back to the previous page. How do I do that?

Best regards

Andreas

PS: I am using Windows 7, IE11, latest Adobe Reader DC and a touch screen.
