Download function

I have a PDF document saved in a SP library. On PowerApps I am able to use the download function but it opens as a new page. Is there a way the PDF document could be downloaded to the user's computer instead of showing it online.

Re: Download function

Hi @alex3 ,

 

Do you want to use download function to download the PDF in your sp library?

You can try the following workaround,I test as next:

@v-yuxima-msft  Are you using the link from the item in Sharepoint? For some reason mine is not dowloading as you showed, instead, it is opening in a new webpage tab.

@v-yuxima-msft 

I have my file saved also as a PDF in the library, but when I set up the button it opens the pdf in a new tab of he webpage and from there I can download it. It does not give me the option to download it as you show in your image 😞

 

Any idea why its happening?
