How to Open a PDF in HTML and JavaScript from a Download Folder?

Estimated read time 1 min read

You can open a PDF file stored in a download folder using JavaScript by creating an <iframe> element and setting its src attribute to the URL of the PDF file. Here’s an example:

<iframe src="file:///C:/Users/UserName/Downloads/example.pdf" style="width:100%; height:500px;"></iframe>

This example assumes that the PDF file is stored at “C:/Users/UserName/Downloads/example.pdf”. Replace this path with the actual path to the file on your system.

Note: This method may not work in all browsers, as some browsers may have security restrictions that prevent the display of local files in an iframe.
