Why do my attachments Download in Chrome instead of Open?

The Chrome browser will typically download your files rather than open them. You see this happening in the StaffCV app when you click on a CV, Cover Letter or other attachment.

However, you can 'tell' Chrome to open the file instead of download it.

Here's how:

  1. When you click to download a particular file type (e.g. .txt, .doc, .docx, .pdf), look at the bottom of your browser window, where you see the little down arrow next to the file name.

  2. Click on this down arrow, and you will see an option 'Always Open Files of This Type'.

  3. Click on that option, and that file type will always auto-open in future.

(Note, you'll need to do this once only for each file type you come across).
