To enable or disable pop-up windows in Brave, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open Brave browser and click on the menu icon at the top right corner (three horizontal lines).
  2. From the drop-down menu, select "Settings".
  3. In the settings menu, scroll down and click on "Privacy and security" in the left-hand sidebar.
  4. Under the "Privacy and security" section, you will find the option for "Site and Shields Settings". Click on it.
  5. In the "Site and Shields Settings" menu, scroll down to the "Additional Permissions" section and locate "Pop-ups and redirects".
  6. Here, you can toggle the switch to enable or disable pop-up windows according to your preference. If the switch is turned on (blue), pop-up windows are allowed. If the switch is turned off (gray), pop-up windows are blocked.
  7. Once you have enabled or disabled pop-up windows, close the settings tab.


Note: Brave also has a built-in pop-up blocker that blocks most pop-ups by default. If the pop-up blocker is enabled, it will still block pop-ups even if you have allowed them in the settings.
