Windows 10, Emacs 25.1 I want to download file from http://whatever.com/file.pdf

So I use command helm-find-files (C-x C-f)

Whe I try C-x C-f http://whatever.com/file.pdf , press return , as result Emacs open my browser (Chrome) and Chrome download pdf file. But I want to download file by Emacs.

  • Enabling (url-handler-mode 1) enables Emacs to do this in general. Does that work with helm? – phils Oct 17 '17 at 21:19
  • Not help. Same result. And show new message: "ad-handle-definition: ‘url-cache-extract’ got redefined" – a_subscriber Oct 18 '17 at 6:59
