Internet Explorer 11 Add Specific Sites to Block List for Pop-Up Blocker

Pop-up Blocker is set to Medium and turned on but there are still a few sites that get through. Would like to know if there is a way that I can set it to add a specific site to the block list to never open pop-ups from.

In IE 11, go to Tools, Internet Options, Privacy tab and then click on Settings beside the Pop Up settings.  Add the sites in there.

You can tweak the settings using Group Policy to set it to High then add exceptions to allow, but I don't see anywhere you can add sites to block.

That is to ALLOW the sites, I want to block them as IE is opening them thinking the site is ok to display pop-ups.

My apologies. The setting I referred to is to Allow Sites.

So then turn the overall setting to High and Allow the sites you want.

I have my system set to Medium and am not bothered. What sites are bothering you?

Exactly.  Block all popups but the sites you allow.

I don't see a way yet (I'm still looking) to add extra sites to block.
