IE Address Bar in popup windows

Published by at 8:44 pm under How To,Shit I Forget

In IE by default the address bar and the status bar is turned off for windows opened by JavaScript and that is fin for users but I want to see it when developing. The issue is that this is really a security thing so I always for get where to go to turn it on so here is how you do it…

First open the “Internet Options” dialog box & select the “Security” tab:


Here you select the zone you want to modify (I do the steps below for each zone)

Then select “Custom level…”:


Scroll down under “Miscellaneous” and find the setting “Allow websites to open windows address or status bars” and select “Enable” (by default it’s Disabled)

Now when you open a window you will see the address bar and be able to copy the URL if needed for debugging.
