How do I enable pop-ups from WSU sites in Internet Explorer?

Follow the steps below to enable pop-ups from Wayne State University sites in Internet Explorer. Most internet browsers have pop-ups disabled by default. WSU faculty must enable pop-ups to utilize Workflow and other systems.

 

For a single computer

 

  • In Internet Explorer, click on the Tools button (the gear button) and then click Internet Settings.

 

 

 

  • In the Internet Options window, click on the Privacy tab and then under the Pop-Up Blocker section, click the Settings button.

 

 

 

  • In the Pop-Up Blocker Settings window, enter *.wayne.edu in the field and then click the Add button.

 

 

 

 

  •  *.wayne.edu should now be listed on the Allowed sites list. Click Close and exit out of all the dialogs boxes.

 

For IT Administrators on multiple computers

 

  • This can be done via Group Policy. You choose either a Computer or a User policy, as the option will be available both ways. In the Group Policy Management Editor, under either Computer Configuration or User Configuration, go to Policies/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Internet Explorer and open the policy named Pop-up allow list.

 

 

 

  • In the Pop-up allow list windows, select the Enabled radio button and then click the Show button.

 

 

 

  • Enter *.wayne.edu as a value and click OK. Apply the GPO to the Computer or User objects in Active Directory.
