I know how to add a page to comparability view but is there anywhere in the browser that it indicates that a given page is in compatibility view so that I can be sure that it is recognizing that the given page needs to be in compatibility view? In previous versions of IE you could hit F12 and it would tell you.

Well I gathered that part. But is there any other mechanism in any manner for one to conclusively say that a given page is being displayed in compatibility view?

You would have noticed this part on the link above,

What if I still need Compatibility View?

There might be extenuating circumstances in your company, which require you to continue to use Compatibility View. In this situation, this process should be viewed strictly as a workaround. You should work with the website vendor to make sure that the affected pages are updated to match the latest web standards. The functionality described here is currently deprecated and will be removed at a time in the future.

Those sites which runs only in compatibility mode needs to be added separately, you can do that as explained on the link, as far as I understand there is no other go
