If Pop-Up Blocker is blocking something you want to see, there are three different ways you can override Yahoo! Pop-Up Blocker for Internet Explorer:
Option 1: Add the source of the pop-up window to your Allowed List:
- Click the Pop-Up Blocker menu.
- Select Always Allow Pop-Ups From…
- Select the site from the Sources of Recently Blocked Pop-Ups list.
- Click Allow.
This allows all pop-ups from this web site to appear without further action.
Option 2: Press and hold the CTRL key while clicking a link. This overrides Pop-Up Blocker for just that one click and allows any pop-up windows resulting from the click to appear. You have to hold down the CTRL key every time before clicking a link to a blocked pop-up.
Option 3: Turn off Pop-Up Blocker by unchecking Enable Pop-Up Blocker on the Pop-Up Blocker menu. This allows all pop-up windows to appear. To turn Pop-Up Blocker back on, select Enable Pop-Up Blocker again so that it has a checkmark.
Note: If you've tried the methods listed above and the pop-up you want is still being blocked, the window is NOT being blocked by Yahoo! Pop-up Blocker. It's being blocked by some other pop-up blocker. Possibilities include another toolbar you've installed, the blocker built into Windows XP service pack 2, or some other program such as an Internet security program or firewall. Due to the wide variety of programs that may be blocking the pop-up, it is not to list them all here. Please look for some indication on your system when the window is being blocked, such as an icon or sound, to determine what's blocking the window from appearing. Check the View > Toolbars menu in Internet Explorer to make sure all of your installed toolbars are visible so that you can see any indicators they may be presenting. If that doesn't resolve the issue, the pop-up could be blocked by another application on your computer. You might want to check the applications listed in the Programs menu of the Start button to see if any of them include an active pop-up blocker.
