I'm wondering if there's a way to view the URL of a pdf file, like in Windows 7? When I open one in Windows 8 with Classic Shell, it is just a 'page' but has no URL at the top.

IE doesn't have the native ability to render PDFs so most likely you had some ActiveX-based addon on Windows 7 which opened the PDF inside IE and showed its URL. That addon is usually installed by the PDF Reader such as Adobe Reader or PDF XChange Viewer.

You can still press Ctrl+J to open the IE Downloads window when you try to load a PDF. Right click the PDF and click "Copy download link" to get the URL.

Read the Search box usage guide.

I am a Windows enthusiast and helped a little with Classic Shell's testing and usability/UX feedback.
