Pop-up windows are additional browser windows that open automatically when you click a link or go to a Web page. Most of the time, these pop-up windows are advertisements. This has led to the implementation of pop-up blockers that prevent these additional windows from opening.
Some Web applications, including the Outlook Web App, use pop-up windows to provide information or functionality. Pop-up blockers prevent the full use of features such as the Find Someone feature on the toolbar and interfere with editing a response to a meeting request.
If a pop-up blocker affects your ability to fully use Outlook Web App, you have two options:
Add the Outlook Web App address to the pop-up blocker's safe list.
Use the light version of Outlook Web App. The light version doesn't rely on pop-up windows.
Click Options > Settings > General.
On the General tab, under Accessibility, select Use the blind and low vision experience.
Click Save or press CTRL+S to save your changes.
Sign out and sign in again to complete the switch to the light version.
