To do this:

  1. In the new Microsoft Edge , go to Settings and more  > Settings  > Site permissions.

  2. Select Pop-ups and redirects.

  3. Move the Block toggle to On.

If the popup blocker is not working after enabling, try these solutions:

  • Make sure Microsoft Edge is up to date: Select Settings and more  > Settings  > About Microsoft Edge . If there is an update available, you can apply it from here.

  • Scan your device for malware: For more, see Stay protected with Windows Security.

  • Disable your extensions: See if an extension is getting in the way. Select Settings and more  > Extensions, then select the switch to the right of each extension to disable it. If popups are being blocked after this, re-enable them one at a time to determine which one is causing the issue.

  • Block third-party cookies: To do this, select Settings and more  > Settings  > Site permissions > Cookies and site data. Then, ensure Block third-party cookies is set to On.

  • Clear your browser cache: For more, see View and delete browser history in Microsoft Edge.
