Not a good solution, using a proper viewer is what is required.

KiCAD comes with a fairly powerful gerber viewer/editor. It's FOSS and a small download volume, so there is no reason to not try it.

People, the Altium free viewer is so that the design files can be viewed - NOT the Gerbers. :)

They got rid of Altium Free viewer as a program. They went to have a license, similar to having a sch and/or pcb license. They have a free license, good for one year, that allows you to use that license type and your version of Altium runs a free viewer.
Caveat - they keep changing licenses, and this info was good as of Oct/Nov of last year when we last updated at the company.
