  • Hi Sveinung,

    Based on your description, I want to confirm which operation system have you used?

    After my test, if you used Windows 7, we could not open PDF files by Internet Explorer. If you used Windows 8.1, there is a build-in app named Reader which could open PDF files.

    In addition, if you want to set IE’s default zoom level, please refer to the link: [apply to IE11]

    Best Regards,
