Load into Folder Views
Pop This! can optionally work in Windows Explorer views. Explorer
views are commonly used for navigating through your local file system,
but can also accept URLs to web sites. Most users do not surf the
web using these windows, so by default Pop This! does not load into
these windows. If however you do surf via these file windows, check
the Load into Explorer options to add Pop This! protection.
In some cases on older Windows 98 systems, all browser views are
actually Explorer views. If you experience trouble preventing pop-ups
with Pop This! on Windows 98, enable this feature.
Some web sites attempt to resize your browser windows. PopThis!
prevents this activity by default. To allow web sites to resize
browser windows, uncheck this feature.
Some web sites attempt to reposition or full screen your browser
windows. PopThis! prevents this activity by default. To allow web
sites to reposition browser windows, uncheck this feature.
Page Load Timer
Displays the amount of time a page takes to fully load in the
status bar text. A friend of mine, Dru, asked me to add this.
Pop-up Alert Sound
Check this feature to enable an audible alert when PopThis! prevents
a pop-up, resize or reposition.
Friendly Site List Editor
The Friendly Site List is a list of web sites PopThis! should
automatically disable for. To add a new web site to the friendly
list, enter the web site's domain into the text entry to the left
of the Insert button and press Insert. For example, to disable PopThis!
protection for any web site served by Google enter "google.com"
into the text edit and press the Insert button. To delete a web
site from the friendly list, select the domain entry in the domain
list and press the Delete button.
