Like every other surfer, I frequently find my desktop littered with numerous IE windows. So I wrote this low-tech tool to clean up the detritus.

This Internet Explorer toolbar button executes three commands for closing IE windows, and one command for exploring IE windows created without the usual ornamentation.

UnPop requires Internet Explorer version 5.0 or higher. Earlier versions do not support adding buttons to the Standard toolbar.

UnPop has been tested in the following environments. If you try it with other configurations, please let me know.

Install

  1. Download setup.exe.

  2. Close all instances of Internet Explorer.

  3. Double-click setup.exe, and follow the prompts.

  4. Restart Internet Explorer.

Use

Use the blue and red Unpop buton on Internet Explorer's toolbar for the following commands:

The various Close commands prevent annoying sites from spawning of new windows.
