@lamps, welcome to the forum.

 

Yes, go into the ... in the upper right corner of Edge and select "Settings"/Advanced settings/Block pop-ups.  I believe that this is On by default.  If not, simply click to change the setting to On.  Will this block all pop-ups? --- I don't know, but it will help.

Thankyou for reply, checked and by default in edge block pop ups is on.  After further research found that many people with edge encountered same as my concern.  Not all ads were being blocked,  At microsoft store downloaded free Adblock and it seems to be doing the trick.  Also ran Malwarebytes adwcleaner.  Things have greatly improved.
