I've found a workaround by opening the locally Google Drive synced PDF directly in a Chrome based browser.

  1. Sync Google Drive files with local machine.
  2. Secondary click the local file > Select Open With > Choose Chrome or a Chrome based browser to open the file.
  3. Go to a specific page number by selecting the page number at the top of the document and typing in a new page number.

Press Ctrl+p on keyboard. Then it will open that PDF in a separate tab where you can jump to a page.
