Technical Questions and Answers about Compass Learning
Q: May I maximize Odyssey screens?
A: You can maximize or resize all Odyssey screens. CompassLearning recommends that you leave the screens at their default and original size.
Q: My pop ‐up blocker is preventing Odyssey from opening windows.
A: Disable any third‐party pop‐up blocker installed on a workstation. The pop‐up blocker in Windows XP SP2 must also be disabled. Odyssey requires the capability to have at least two browser windows open simultaneously.
