IE 10 on Win8 Issue with Web Portal on IIS 6

We have a remote user who is accessing our Windows Server 2003/IIS 6/Sharepoint 3.0 - based web site with a new Windows 8 machine/IE 10. Everything seems to be OK except for when he tries to 'drop-down' at a field using an elipsis button... nothing happens. Anyone seen anything like this?

Have you tried "Compatibility Mode" with IE?

I would also use IE from the old desktop and not from Metro.

That is where I would go with this?

HTH,

Kent

Well, we're trying to get some additional information about this right now. I will suggest the user try these things. Unfortunately, we don't have a Win 8 machine available to experiment with. This is a business partner but not an employee, and we'll have to give the individual a call, but we don't control the machine so our options will be limited to suggesting some solutions. I'll keep you posted.

SharePoint Menus are client-side JavaScript.  IE10 is locked down and it cripples JavaScript unless you relax the settings somewhat.   Try adding your SharePoint URL to the Intranet Zone in the user's browser.  This setting will be remembered in the user's profile.

Another thing to try is adjusting the compatibility mode.

In the user's browser, press F12 to open the Developer window.  In the top right are two compatibility options: Browser Mode and Document Mode.  I am running Windows 8 and I find that switching to IE9 mode usually fixes any problems I have.  You can play with combinations to see what works for you.  These settings will also be remembered.

If menus are your only problem, then an alternative is to use Firefox or Safari.  But that is also a limited experience, because you wouldn't have the client/server integration and some icons would be grayed out in the ribbon.
