without address bar

Recently we were struggling with trying to figure out how to suppress the address bar for a popup window opened using JavaScript’s method. Normally, there is an option there which allows you to specify ‘location=no’ and the address bar is expected to be hidden. However, no matter what we tried, this did not work for us.

Later on I chanced upon an Internet Explorer setting which actually controls the final display. There is a security setting ‘Allow websites to open windows without address or status bar’:


This setting needs to be set to ‘Enable’ for the respective zone (such as Trusted sites etc.) for the address bar display to be suppressed.

Hope this hint helps!

    Finally IE Has Such A Control. It Gives More Power To The User To Decide How The Information Is Displayed. I Personally Had This Problem.
