I have added the the Main Key and the sub key enterprise mode in Hklm\sw\polices\internet explorer. Enable the enterprise mode. But still  does not show up under tools.

In the local GPO, i have no option to Let users to enable enterprise mode under user configuration-windows component- Internet explorer.

Thanks for all ur help

did you do it using Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) or local editor?

You can turn Enterprise Mode on in Internet Explorer 11 or later using Group Policy Editor. Just follow these simple steps:

1. Type gpedit.msc in RUN or Start search box and press Enter. It'll open Group Policy Editor.

2. Now go to:

Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer

3. In right-side pane, look for "Let users turn on and use Enterprise Mode from the Tools menu" option.

4. The option would be set to Not Configured. Double-click on it and set it to Enabled.


Apply the changes and now you can use Enterprise Mode feature in Internet Explorer 11 and later using "Tools -> Enterprise Mode" option in Menubar.

PS: To disable Enterprise Mode feature, again set the "Let users turn on and use Enterprise Mode from the Tools menu" option to Not Configured.

This reference provides much the same steps as mentioned by Leon Teale but goes on to the "Activate Enterprise Mode" step at the end.

The problem is that the "Let users turn on and use Enterprise Mode from the Tools menu" option is missing .
