3. Browser Settings: Once you have the latest supported browser versions, you may easily start the test. However, in a rare case you may face difficulty in starting the test, due to the pop-up blocker setting of your browser. Here is what you can do to fix this:
Use the “allow once/always” pop-ups function from your browser settings to allow test window to open
Optionally, you may disable the pop-up blocker for the duration of the test. Here is how you can do it:
For Mozilla Firefox on Windows: Go to ‘Tools’ –> Select ‘Options’ –> Click ‘Content’ tab and then uncheck ‘Block Pop-up windows’ check box.
For Google Chrome: Go to ‘chrome://settings/’ –> Click on ‘Show advanced settings’ (at the end of the page). Under ‘Privacy’, click on ‘Content Settings’ –> Under ‘Pop-ups’, select ‘Allow all sites to show pop-ups’ –> Click on Done.
After performing the above steps, please restart the browser.
4. Things to remember: Browser Cache Settings: It is always advisable to clear browser cache/cookies before starting your final test. For most browsers, pressing “CTRL+SHIFT+DELETE” and selecting Clear Cache (for Firefox and Chrome) helps you clear the cookies.
In case you still face any issue in loading the test,shutdown the system directly using power button and then clear the cache again.
System Updates: It is also recommended to disable security patches, updates of the anti-virus definitions and/or application updates (manually) during the test in order to avoid any interference while taking the test.You can disable automatic system updates for the duration of the test as they may lead to heavy downloads during the test and auto-system restart will hamper your test progress.
To disable System Auto-updates, follow the below steps:
For Windows, Go to ‘Start’ -> ‘Run’ -> Type Services.msc’ and then stop ‘Automatic Updates’ service.
