Control Click It

Control Click It

We all know that pop ups are bad and to help our computers combat against them, most of us have pop up blockers installed on our PCs, right? I know I do! I don’t like to waste my time with those things! But, on the other hand, has a pop up ever prevented you from clicking on a link that you wanted to check out? This has happened to me quite a few times too.

So, what can we do? Well, first of all, this is what happens. Maybe one of your friends sent you an e-mail with a link to this Web site they wanted you to see. Or maybe you’re on a site and you want to click one of its links. Either way, when you click on it, nothing happens. You probably see a little note at the bottom telling you that a pop up was blocked, which is all well and good, but what about the link? The pop up actually ended up blocking the Web site as well and it won’t allow you to view it until you do something else.

When this happens, just hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and click the link again. This will offset your pop up blocker and therefore, notify your computer that it’s okay to view that particular link. With just a Ctrl + click, you can enable the pop up and be able to see the site you’ve been waiting for. That’s all it takes. Pretty cool, huh?!
