Compatibility Settings won't "stick" -- localhost

In IE 11 on Windows 7 Premium, I have to open "Compatibility View Settings" and Add "localhost" in order for the web app to render properly.

The problem is - I am having to do this every time I debug the app.  Why won't the settings stick / how can I make them stick?

Thank you!

Try saving that setting while you aren't running the debugger. I remember someone reporting before that IE wouldn't save any changes to it's configuration while running visual studio to debug the application.

Interesting....


I also read that deleting your history on exit helps the setting stick.  Apparently that setting is considered to be "part of" one's search history.

No problem. Interesting that it's considering a search history.

Just realized while you are developing something you can force the document mode in the html. See https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj676913(v=vs.85).aspx
