A window that can be displayed on the screen at any time on top of anything that is already on the screen. When the window is removed, the original screen display is restored. These are most often used to display warning messages or to confirm a choice. For example, if you try to save a file with a name that is the same as an existing file, you'll see a pop-up window that asks if you want to overwrite the existing file or change the name. These pop-up windows are often called dialogue boxes.
A window that suddenly appears (pops up) on your desktop while surfing the WWW or when you select an option with a mouse or press a special function key.

A small window (enclosed, rectangular area) that suddenly appears ("pops up") in the foreground of the visual interface. Pop-ups can be initiated by a single or double mouse click or rollover (sometimes called a mouseover), or can simply be timed to occur. Pop-ups are similar to daughter windows, but they are not associated with a banner.
This technique uses a script that opens a legitimate Web site in the background, while a spoofed pop-up window, usually identical to the legitimate Web site, is opened in the foreground. In effect, this misleads the user into thinking that pop-up window is directly related to the official page. In some cases, the pop-up window covers a portion of a legitimate Web site.
