I am looking to go to a website which needs to be viewed in compatibility view with InPrivate browsing.

How can I roll-out an icon with group policy which launches with the compatibility view and InPrivate browsing?

Server 2008 R2, IE10

In addition to Radhakrishnan Rajayyan GP suggestion you could create a GP preference to create a shortcut the would open IE using inprivate browsing using the syntax in the following link:

This seems to work better if you create it as a one line batch file, not a shortcut. To get the in private session you would add -private to the command line. In the shortcut you are creating for the website, you can change the properties of the item to run in compatibility mode: http://www.verboon.info/2011/03/running-an-application-as-administrator-or-in-compatibility-mode/

So the command line in notepad would look something like this:

iexplore -private <URL>

Save this with the extension ".cmd". Then go into the properties and look at the compatibility tab.
