How to open a PDF file (or any file) in the sharepoint site

Not long ago, I had to view a PDF file from sharepoint. But I got the following message:

Do you want to save file-name from yours-site

Who does not know this message? But I've  target 'self' in 'a' tag html????

It turns out that SharePoint having your code to protect customers. They can only give you their familiar software like Office, but a pdf file - Microsoft unfamiliar terms.

To resolve, you need to make a change in Central-Admin

Go to your Web Application manage - General Setting

Find Browser File Handling and Change the default to Strict.

It all friends, now you can view any file on the portal (at your own risk).
