How to use an external PDF-Viewer?


How can I start from Bave (latest version, ‘Version 0.60.48 Chromium: 72.0.3626.121 (Official Build) (64-bit)’) an external PDF-Reader e.g. FoxIt instead of the internal viewer and instead of saving the .pdf.

Chrome (latest version, 72.0.3626.121) downloads the .PDF and then starts FoxIt. I installed this long time ago and I have no idea how I made chrome work like this! I checked the settings in Chrome and Brave (in my opinion identical) and there seems no Extension loaded in Chrome to open .PDF in FoxIt.

Desperately I even tried to do download a Chrom extension that is said to perform this job (Open In). It installs in Brave, but seems to have no influence. When I click the Link to the .PDF it still wants to save the .PDF

All this runs in a Win7 Enterprise x64.
