Scroll down and click the Emulation icon
There is a little cog and bar icon at the top of the window - make sure it is enabled
Select IE10 in the dropdown

Done.

In the Emulation section to the right of the title Emulation should be the icon
Else add a meta tag to the site.

<meta http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE10" >

In that sites HEAD section just add that meta tag immediately after the opening <head> tag.
That will force IE11 to act as IE10
<!doctype HTML>
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE10" >
...

Open in new window
