How to control the pop-up blocker in Internet Explorer

ome sites may try to open pop-ups, which are new browser windows that may be hidden under the current window or displayed on the top.

Generally, pop-ups are used for advertising, but some sites may use them to show information without disrupting the currently open page.

Whenever Internet Explorer blocks a pop-up window, a message like this one will appear.

5) Click Settings.


6) Type the address of the web site for which you want to allow pop-ups and click Add.

7) Click Close.


That's it! Now you know how to manage your pop-up blocker in Internet Explorer.
