Disabling web content in Poll Everywhere app for Windows

Important note: The following article is intended for IT professionals as the steps below entail making edits to the computer’s Windows registry. If you are not sure how to perform the steps described below, please seek out a qualified IT professional.

To disable inserting and displaying videos and websites in the Poll Everywhere app for Windows you will need to edit the app’s registry entry and add a DWORD key named WebContent with a value of 0.

When the Poll Everywhere registry key is set to 1 (or anything other than 0), video and website slides will be displayed.

For 64 bit windows, the registry key should be located at:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Poll Everywhere

For 32 bit windows, the registry key should be located at:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Poll Everywhere

Helpful tip: If you are missing the Poll Everywhere directory in either \Wow6432Node or \Software, you will need to create it before creating the DWORD key.
