Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I dont want to grey out compatibility view. I want to go inside that setting and choose "Display all websites in Compatibility View". I looked in that area and saw nothing that allows me to check the box that says " display all websites in compatibility view".

And "Allow video and Animation setting" I actually need the one that says "Display video and animation on webpage that does not use external media player" I only see "Display video and animation on webpage that use a legacy media player"

Any other area you can think of?

Compatibility View can be found at the below location...
Comp Config>AdminTemplates>WinComponents>InternetExplorer>Compatibility View>"Turn on IE 7 Standard Mode"

As for the "Display video and animation" use the below path...
Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Internet Control Panel\Security Page\Locked-Down Internet Zone

Reference - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc985351.aspx
It is near the bottom of the page where it is located.

Yes I found that earlier.I did find the compatibility view but not the video and animation setting. I attached a screenshot. Maybe I need to add a admin template?

If you do not what to block user from making changes but prefer there browser defaults to specific values, have you looked at setting the IE setting for IE8 using Group Policy Preferences?

Hi Thomastxiee, as I mention before you can do this using a group policy preference to push as reg key to the workstations..

Please see the following article:
