I would like to know how to configure a GPO to UNCHECK the "display intranet sites in Compatibility View" box  See attached screen shot (jpg) file

We use IE 9, on Windows 7 and XP boxes.

I can't seem to find this setting in the IE template file.

Please advise, thanks

    Did you want to turn it off completely?

    Accepted Solution

    No, only wanted turned off for INTRANET sites.

    I just figured out i can do a GPO to change this registry setting: n regedit, go to HKCU, Software, Microsoft, Internet explorer, browser emulation and change the hexadecimal value to 0 for off and 1 for on.

    I had hoped to find this as part of the template.
