How to allow pop-up windows in Chrome

Chrome blocks pop-up windows, but you can allow specific sites to create pop-up windows when needed.

Chrome blocks pop-up windows by default. When a website tries to launch a pop-up window, Chrome blocks it but also displays a warning. Click the warning to allow pop-up windows on that site.

To allow a pop-up window in Chrome, do the following:

  1. Launch Chrome.
  2. When you are on a website that attempts to launch a pop-up window, Chrome will block it and will display the following warning on the right side of the address bar at the top of the page: Pop-up blocked.
    • After a moment, this warning message changes to a small icon that looks like a box with a red X on it.
  3. Click the pop-up warning and select Always allow pop-ups from. Then click Done.

Pop-up windows are now allowed. If you are trying to access a website that uses pop-up windows, you may need to reload the page to allow the pop-up windows to appear.
