I just downloaded the PDF edition of The Paymaster, but I don’t see the file. How do I find the PDF?

The trick is to make sure you are checking within the browser you used to download the file.

  • Chrome, Edge, Firefox and Internet Explorer all have “downloads” sections.
  • On a Windows machine, they all have the same shortcut – Ctrl+J to get to the downloads. 
  • On a Mac, you can find the PDF with Shift + ⌘ Command + J or Alt + J for Chrome or Firefox; in Safari it is under the “view” menu.

If the download is not listed, then one of two things happened.

  • It was removed from the downloads list or; 
  • It may have opened the link in another browser (possibly inadvertently). For instance, if you commonly use Chrome, but use Outlook for your email, Outlook may have opened the link in another browser.

Please be mindful that most in-browser PDF viewings don’t have notes available, so you would have to download and install Acrobat Reader for full functionality.

How do I easily navigate through the digital PDF of The Paymaster?

The PDF file includes a fully linked table of contents that allows you to easily navigate to each section of the guide. For Adobe Acrobat, refer to the “Bookmarks” section.
