Web Browser: How to Enable or Disable Pop-ups

This service is for faculty, staff, student, student workers, residence hall students, student clubs, and visitors.

Pop-up windows, or pop-ups, are screens that appear automatically without your permission. They vary in size but usually don't cover the whole screen. Some pop-ups open on top of the current browser window, while others appear underneath (pop-unders).

Most web browsers include a feature to block pop-up windows. While this may eliminate unwanted or bothersome pop-up windows, it sometimes can impede the functionality of legitimate or useful websites.  

St. Thomas websites that require pop ups include ebill/epay, Voicethread, and other Canvas add-ins.

How to Enable or Disable Pop Ups in your Browser

Note: If you have installed third party applications to block pop-ups (examples include the Google, MSN, and Yahoo! toolbars), be sure to consult the vendor documentation to allow pop-up windows for desired websites.
