Disabling the Pop-Up Blocker in Your Internet Browser

Skyward and some other tools require the use of pop-ups to be able to use the functionality of the site. Below is a guide that will walk you through the steps you need:

  • Open the Chrome browser
  • In the upper right-hand corner, click the three vertical dots, then select Settings
  • Type “pop-ups” in the search box. Press Enter.
  • There will be one result in the category Site Settings. Choose Site Settings.
  • Choose whether you want to allow pop-ups for all sites (click the toggle button at the top of the screen) or just add Skyward and other specific sites to the list of allowed sites. Click “Add” next to the allow list and add your site. Close the tab when finished. Your settings will automatically save.
