I seem to remember that a browser can be configured via a setting to control what happens when a pdf url is clicked. I think the options are something like "Open in new page" or "Open as file". I haven't checked or tested this lately but maybe this was configurable behavior in IE 10+ years ago. Is this a standard configuration option in most modern browsers?
A stakeholder from the business wants me to include a url on a web page that says "Download Methodology" which points to a Methodology.pdf. This would just be a single pdf url on a page. It wouldn't be 1 of many pdfs in a pdf download section.
Would it be better to just include a url on the page that says Methodology.pdf? If the browser is configured to download a pdf when clicked then the browser will download the pdf. Otherwise, the browser will simply open a new window with the pdf where the user can either read the pdf or click a button to download it.
Also, the business person wants "Download Methodology" to wrap on 2 lines. Are there any rules in ux which specify that a url should display on a single line instead of wrapping?
