One of the basic things you can do with Javascript is to open up a small popup window. You can set the resulting window to any size you want. You can make the window scrollable, fixed and resizable. To create a popup window, we will use a simple link to trigger the event. Here are details of our page with some embedded Javascript code.

In this example, we are using a regular link to trigger an event. Instead of the standard URL on the link, we will use the “javascript:open_window()” function. The “open_window” function opens the contents of my home page, which is We can point it to any file or page that we want. The new window is called “abc.”

The popup window is sized accordingly to a width of 700 and height of 500, and it contains a scrollbar, and it’s resizeable.

Check the demo below.

<a href="javascript:open_window()">Link</a>
function open_window() {'','abc','width=700,height=500,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes');
