How do I get IE10 to launch in a specific compatibility view and/or browser mode?
Posted on 2014-09-18
I am working on a large rollout of IE10. IE10 works 95% of the time and for the few sites that do not display properly, Compatibility View corrects 80% of those.
There are a few sites and web apps that require older versions of IE to display properly.
By opening the developer’s toolbar by hitting F12 and selecting IE8 Browser Mode will usually let this display properly. So I have a two part question.
a. Is it possible to have a specific site come up in a specific browser mode every time it is launched? If so how?
b. If not, can the browser be forced to launch in a specific browser mode, such as IE8 mode, every time it is launched. If so how?
A side note, I cannot upgrade to IE11. That solution isn’t an option at this time.
Thanks very much for your feedback!
