If I disable the pop-up blocker does that mean I am going to constantly get pop-ups now?
No, you are only disabling the pop-up blocker for Sitecore. Your pop-up blocker will still be active for other sites.
Why do I have to use Internet Explorer (IE)?
The way Sitecore was built, it uses a very specific type of code that is only fully compatible with Internet Explorer. You can see Sitecore on other browsers and even use it to a certain extent, but some of the features will not work unless you are using IE. Sorry, thems the breaks!
Why can't I use my Mac?!
IE does not work on Macs. In the ongoing computer giant battles, IE was developed for PC and not for Macs. There are ways to run fake operating systems on your Mac to trick it, but why bother? You have access to plenty of great working PCs throughout the McCombs school.
Where can I find downloads for IE updates, and Adobe Flash Player?
