ie11 compatibility vertical scrollbar

When setting compatibility mode in IE11 a vertical scrollbar displays at all times, enabled and disabled as required - even for www.google.co.uk. We have to use compatibility for our own site so how can this be removed ?

To what version of IE are setting the Compatibility Mode?  Is there really some content to see by scrolling down?
Is this something new?  If so run a System Restore to a time before it started.

Maybe your Zoom level is incorrect.
Click the gear at the top right and click Zoom.  Click on a lower zoom level, like 125%.

Is this happening on all sites you visit in IE?

cehrnowAuthor Commented:
Yes, happens on all sites.
Zoom is set to 100%.
Also noticeable that the Google symbol is not displayed correctly.

I suggest you uninstall and reinstall IE 11.

Control Panel|Programs and Features|View Installed Updates|in "Microsoft Windows" section scroll to Internet Explorer 11|right click |Uninstall.  If IE is your only browser, it might be best to download the installation files for IE11 before uninstalling.

if only some specific sites or pages need to be visited in compatibility view then you may simply add the sites in Compatibility View Settings of IE11 and access most sites in a normal way with the browser's default view.

see below the blog post giving the how-to details.

so you do mean google.co.uk is not listed under Compatibility View but it does display like that even with an incomplete logo shown in the middle of Google UK's home page?

Under IE10 google.co.uk displays okay. But if you then select compatibility (using the compatibility button) it then also displays as shown in the image previous attached.

Well, don't use the Compatibility button.

Compatibility Mode in !E 10  allows you to choose what version of IE you want to use.

It is slightly different in IE 11--reached by clicking F12.  Then click the drop down arrow for Document Mode.

Compatibility View in either IE 10 or IE 11 only uses IE7.

As stated in the initial question we have to use compatibility for our own site. The point of mentioning google is to demonstrate that the issue it is not specific to our code.

jcimarronCommented:
Note the difference between Compatibility Mode  and Compatibility View.
Also can you use IE 10 instead of IE 11?

cehrnowAuthor Commented:
We are now using IE10 with Compatibility View.

that sounds like by design and that google home page is not supposed to be accessed that way.

you should only use the Compatibility View button when necessary (NOT always or by default), and use the Compatibility View Settings to manage the sites to be viewd in compatible mode.

I am not sure what you are telling us.  Is the problem fixed?

Having uninstalled IE11 as suggested and reinstallation failing, a Windows Update has installed IE10 which displays exactly the same issue.

i would guess if it is a site-specific issue... have you tried accessing some other sites to see if the issue persists?
