Internet Explorer compatibility mode - url list

Hi,

does IE8 store the list of URLs which a user set to show in IE7 compatibility mode by clicking on the special button next to address bar?
Probably that's not clear enough so I'll try to illustrate on an example.

I navigate to an URL http://www.anything.com. Now I click on the special button to view page in IE7 compatibility mode. How does IE remeber this setting to show the page in IE7 compatibility mode next time I run IE application?
Does it save the value http://www.anything.com somewhere in the registry?
Is there a way to find the list of URL's which have compatibility mode turned on outside the IE application?
Thank you in advance!

Regards,
Martin

Thank you corneliu_news,

unfortunatelly this is probably not what I need, when I remove appropriate value from mentioned registry key, it doesn't affect the IE's behavior. It's still set to render in compatibility mode. Also no effect when adding new values.

The typedURLs value stores what was type into the address bar...

I captured the above with Process Monitor, using Registry/FileSystem Writes, and it was the only thing that got a hit......

Oh, and the following DWORD value was written.....

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation\
"UnattendLoaded":dword=00000001
