Configure Common Pop-Up Blockers to Work

Depending on how your course is configured, tests, weblinks, and other course content may require that popup blockers allow Moodle to work in a pop-up.

What are pop-ups?

Pop-up windows, or pop-ups, are browser windows that appear automatically without your permission while viewing the web. Typically pop-ups vary in size, but rarely do they cover your whole browser window. They can be intrusive, typically advertising and in some instances are necessary.

Listed below are some of the most popular pop-up blocking software packages and instructions to enable pop-up blockers. Generally, most pop-up blockers will install themselves either within the browser toolbar, or within the Windows Taskbar along the bottom right corner of your screen. Depending upon what is installed on your computer, it is possible that you may have more than one pop-up blocker running. You will have to either disable all of your pop-up blockers or configure them to allow Moodle or a course content site as an exception before all of the content in Moodle can work properly.

The following list will help you in identifying your pop-up blocker(s) and how to configure them.
