I'd like to provide a link to a PDF document in Google Drive like [documenturl]?page=4 and have that link jump to the specified page.

With a quick search, I was only able to find this unresolved forum question: Link to a specific page in an uploaded .pdf


A work-around that I discovered for this is:

  1. Create a comment on the PDF. Highlight the area that you want to be able to jump to (e.g. a heading on the page).
  2. Click the 3-dot menu on the comment you just created, and choose "Link to this comment..."

You can send the displayed URL to someone and when they open it it will directly jump to that part of the PDF.

The solution by Christopher Harwood does not seem to work any more in the latest version of Google Drive.

  • For me, still worked as a charm: very useful. Please accept my admiration. – Vladimir Brasil Dec 7 '18 at 0:36

Edit: This no longer works.

Incomplete answer: Google Drive displays pages as images, so you can display specific pages by providing the direct image link.

  • Still not implemented it seems as the above answer does not work. I sent feedback in Google Drive. I encourage others to do the same and link back to this item. – bgoodr Nov 18 '17 at 18:26
