Disable PopUp Blockers
For some websites to work, you need to disable "PopUp Blockers". Instructions vary for different types of Popup Blockers, but here are some examples:
To always allow popups on a particular site - click the popup button while at that site. This may not always work because some course tools are "served" from different sites.
You can also manually turn the popup blocker on and off. Click on the Google Toolbar to choose Options:
From the Options Panel -- Uncheck Popup Blocker:
|MSN Toolbar||Turn the Pop-up Guard on and off by clicking its button on the MSN Toolbar
Go to http://toolbar.msn.com/ if you need more help using the MSN toolbar
|Internet Explorer in Windows XP, SP2||The newest version of Internet Explorer has a Popup Blocker. To disable it:
|Other Popup Blockers:||Many will have a button you can click on or off. It may be located in the "toolbar" (top) of your browser or in the "system tray" (that's the sunken area on the lower right of your Windows screen that usually contains the time and other icons).
If you don't have a button then you should have a menu -- it is often located in your browser toolbar. Menus can be indicated by a downward arrow next to an icon or name - as shown in the examples above. If you have a specialized toolbar (similar to the Google toolbar) - there may be an "Options" menu next to the toolbar name or icon.
