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:
- Launch Chrome.
- 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.
- 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.
