How to modify your pop-up settings in Chrome

A pop-up is a window that suddenly appears (pops up) when you select an option with a mouse or press a special function key. Usually, the pop-up window contains a menu of commands and stays on the screen only until you select one of the commands. It then disappears. Some of these pop-ups are disruptive advertisements however some are helpful and provide important information. Please follow the instructions below to enable/disable the pop-up blocker in your web browser as needed.

  • Click “Chrome” in the upper left corner of your screen and select “Preferences...” from the menu.

  • A new page will load. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Show advanced settings…”. This will reveal more settings at the bottom of the page.

  • Scroll down to the section labeled “Privacy” and click the button labeled “Content Settings…”.

  • A new window will appear in the center of the screen. Scroll down to the section labeled “pop-ups”. To allow pop-ups, put a check in the box next to “Allow all sites to show pop-ups”. To disable or block pop-ups, put a check in the box next to “Do not allow any site to show pop-ups”.
