How to View PDF attachments in Lightning Experience without downloading them?

I created a link for pdfs stored in files on the Opportunity record. When I switch to lightning and click on the link, salesforce is directly downloading them instead of viewing them?
How can I view the pdfs instead of downloading?
Thank you!

Hi @Reshmi,
This can be actually solved by setting the pdf filetype to 'Execute in Browser' from Setup -> Security Controls -> File Upload and Download Security
