Pop-Up blocker help

How do I know if my Pop-Up blocker may have blocked something on the website?

Turning Off Pop-Up Blockers
There are three ways to deactivate blockers to allow pop-ups on the desired website.
  1. Completely turn off the pop-up blocker.

  2. You can also add the desired website to an "allow list". This will allow pop-ups for the desired website only, while blocking pop-ups for all other sites

  3. Press and hold the CTRL key while clicking a link that opens a pop-up on the desired website. This will override Pop-Up Blocker just for that one click and allow any pop-up windows resulting from the click to appear. You will have to hold down the CTRL key before clicking the link every time you click on a link that is currently being blocked.

Microsoft Service Pack 2 (SP2) With the release of Microsoft’s Service Pack 2, Pop-Up Blocking is now directly integrated into Internet Explorer. Note that by default Pop-Up blocking is Enabled within SP2 Listed below is the location of the menu within Internet Explorer: Click on Turn Off Pop-up Blocker. Once this is done then the user should be able to view the program. Once they are finished watching the Program, they can go back in and recheck the entry to re-enable their Pop-Up Blocker.
