Controlling Pop-Up Settings

To control pop-up settings on Google Chrome, you can access the browser’s settings and make adjustments. Start by opening Chrome and clicking on the three-dot menu in the top right corner. Then, select “Settings” from the dropdown menu.

Next, scroll down and click on “Advanced” to reveal more options. Under the “Privacy and security” section, click on “Site settings.” From there, select “Pop-ups and redirects” to manage how Chrome handles pop-ups.

To block all pop-ups, toggle the switch to the off position. If you want to allow pop-ups from specific sites, click on “Add” next to the “Allow” section and enter the website’s URL.

You can also use browser extensions like UBlock Origin to further control pop-ups and prevent unwanted ads. Just visit the Chrome Web Store, search for the extension, and add it to your browser.

By adjusting these settings and using extensions, you can effectively control pop-ups on Google Chrome and enjoy a more seamless browsing experience.

If you are experiencing freezing or slowdowns on Google Chrome due to damaged system files or faulty settings, Fortect can help address these issues. It can also assist with missing or corrupt DLL files that may be causing pop ups.

However, if the pop ups are caused by other factors, Fortect may not be able to fix the issue.

Allowing or Blocking Notifications

To allow or block notifications on Google Chrome, follow these steps. First, click on the three-dot icon in the top right corner of the browser window. Then, select “Settings” from the dropdown menu. Next, scroll down and click on “Privacy and security” in the left-hand menu. After that, click on “Site settings” and then “Notifications.”

To allow notifications from a specific site, simply click on the “Add” button next to “Allow” and enter the website’s URL. To block notifications, click on the “Add” button next to “Block” and enter the website’s URL.

You can also manage notifications for individual websites by visiting the site, clicking on the lock icon in the address bar, and adjusting the notification settings there.

For a more hands-off approach, you can use a browser extension like uBlock Origin to block all pop-up ads and notifications. Just visit the Chrome Web Store, search for uBlock Origin, and click “Add to Chrome” to install the extension.
