Enabling Pop-up Blocker
This section provides a tutorial example on how to enable the Pop-up Blocker and change its settings in Internet Explorer 10.
What is a pop-up? A pop-up is a small web browser window that appears on top of the website you're viewing. Pop-up windows often open as soon as you visit a website and are usually created by advertisers.
What is Pop-up Blocker? Pop-up Blocker is a feature in Internet Explorer (IE) 10 that lets you limit or block most pop-ups. You can choose the level of blocking you prefer, from blocking all pop-up windows to allowing the pop-ups that you want to see. When Pop-up Blocker is turned on, the Information bar displays a message saying "Pop-up blocked. To see this pop-up or additional options click here."
Most websites do not use pop-ups. So you should completely turn on the Pop-up Blocker to block all pop-ups.
1. Click menu: Tools > Pop-up Blocker > Turn on Pop-up Blocker,
until you see the same menu entry changes to "Turn off Pop-up Blocker":
2. Click menu: Tools > Pop-up Blocker > Pop-up Blocker Settings You see the "Pop-up Blocker Settings" dialog box showing up.
3. Click menu: Tools > Pop-up Blocker > Pop-up Blocker Settings You see the "Pop-up Blocker Settings" dialog box showing up.
4. Review and change settings as listed below:
Pop-ups are currently blocked. You can allow pop-ups from specific websites by adding the site to the list below. Allowed sites: (empty) Checked: Show Notification bar when a pop-up is blocked: Blocking level: High: Block all pop-ups (Ctrl+Alt to override)
No pop-ups will show up from now on.
