Stopping Pop-Ups In IE 10

I UPGRADED TO IE 10 AND I AM FRUSTRATED WITH THE POP UPS HOW DO I STOP THEM? THANK YOU FOR ALL THE INFO IN YOUR NEWSLETTERS.

Edward, it sounds like those pop-ups are really aggravating you. Here’s how to turn on the pop-up blocker in Internet Explorer 10.

You’ll want to click the little gear symbol to the far right and select Internet Options from the drop-down menu.

The Internet Options window will open and you’ll want to select the Privacy tab.

 

Put a check in the box next to Turn on Pop-up blocker.

 

 

If you’d like to set it so that pop-ups are allowed from some sites, click the Settings button.

 

 

You’ll see options to control pop-up permissions.

 

Under Exceptions, you can choose sites where you want to see pop-ups – this might be sites where you play games or need to fill out forms.

 

 

You can choose to have either a visual or an audio notification when a pop-up is blocked.

From the Blocking level drop-down you can select whether you want a high, medium or low level of pop-up blocking.

Hopefully these changes will end your frustrations.
