Enable/Disable Pop-up Windows in Google Chrome

Popups can be one of the most annoying things in browser while surfing the Internet. But in rare cases, popup windows may contain important information from a legitimate Web site that you may want to access.
Controlling pop-up windows in Google Chrome is slightly different than other browsers, you would have to look in a different place to enable the settings.

  • Open Google Chrome and select “Options” (for windows) or "Preferences" if you are on Mac.

  • Click on the “Under the Hood” tab. Under “Privacy” click on the “Content settings” button.

  • Find Content Settings dialog click on the “Allow all sites to show pop-ups” option. If you leave this option open to all the sites then just be careful to turn it off once you are done.
  • Exception: Type the url of the site to give exceptions.
