Internet Explorer 6 - Using the Popup Blocker

This document explains how to use the popup blocker in Internet Explorer 6.

Internet Explorer 6 has added a popup blocker feature. This document explains how to use the popup blocker to meet your needs. For general information on popup blockers, see our Popup Blocker - FAQ.

To open the "Pop-up Blocker Settings Menu," open IE and go to Tools > Pop-up Blocker > Pop-up Blocker Settings.

Notifications and Filter Level

The "Notifications and Filter Level" section allows you to set popup filter level and notification preferences.
  1. Go to "Notifications and Filter Level" at the bottom of the menu. Choose the filter level you want. It is recommended to keep the default setting of "Medium."
  2. The other two check boxes are optional and notify you when popups are blocked.


The "Exceptions" section allows you to allow popups from specified websites.
  1. Open the "Pop-up Blocker Settings Menu" by going to Tools -> Pop-up Blocker -> Pop-up Blocker Settings.
  2. "Exceptions" is the first section. To add a site to this list, enter the URL in "Address of website to allow:", and click the Add button. That site will now appear in your "Allowed Sites" list below.
  3. To remove a site from your "Allowed Sites," single-click on the site to highlight it and click the Remove button. You can remove all allowed site by clicking the Remove All button.
