How To Disable Facebook Pop-ups In Chrome


facebookIn the past couple of months I have been getting irritated with Facebook. What has been bothering me you ask? The Pop-up notifications on my computer. You know what I’m talking about. Those Pop-up boxes in the bottom right corner of your computer screen that says something is happening on your FB. At first it was nice to see this, but now it has out-stayed its welcome. So, in this article, I will show you how to turn this feature off, plus show you how to turn it on again, since I know some day I could change my mind and want that feature back. Also, if you are like me, you sometimes turn off features accidentally, or a young one does it for you (my 3 year-old loves doing that to me).

How To Disable the Pop-ups

Here are the steps you should follow:

Step 1: This is going to sound weird but you need to head to Google Chrome.  Open the browser

Step 2: Head up to the right and click on the 3 dots. If you do not see that it could also be 3 lines laid out like the dots. This will bring up a drop menu. Select the Settings option.
