    4. Click “Update”
    5. Done.

Note! There is a difference between uploading a PDF v.s. a Word document. Web browsers can’t open and display a Word document, and will download the Word file directly to the user’s desktop instead.

If you upload a PDF to your page, the PDF will open in the browser window instead of download when clicked. The user then has the option to download the PDF if he/she wants to.
