You need to install the administrative template for IE11 in to your gpos

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Am I missing something? Im not seeing how it shows me how to add the IE11 settings. Am I suppose to edit the hidden ILT file?

This is the guide I have bookmarked from when we rolled out IE11 policies at one place:

http://www.alexheer.co.uk/it-blog/configuring-ie11-settings-via-group-policy

One of the things that wasn't immediately obvious when some settings didn't take was that when using the "Configuring Internet Settings" policy for Internet Explorer 10 etc. some fields are red and others green. Red doesn't apply and the green are applied. You press F5 = all Green, F6 = green, F7 = Red, F8 = All Red

What it is it you want to do?

double check the then Version of IE administrative template is the  newer version. within the GPO/ make sure you do not reference an older IE10,9 or 8....

under a GPO Administrator Templates, right click and review the templates.
you are looking at the inetres file to be at least from 8/2014 to be ie 11....

use win 8.1 / 2012 R2 GPMC console and you should get IE 11 preference setting
Because win 2008 / R2 server cannot load IE 11 preference items by design and even if you done IE maintenance settings from GPO on these OS, IE 10 and 11 do not understand it.
if you install IE 11 on win 2008 / R2 DC, it will remove traditional Internet explorer maintenance tab from GPO and still you will not be able to get IE preference for IE 10 and 11

Install GPMC on above OS and manage GPO from there, you will find GP preference for IE 5 to IE 10 there only
IE 10 is applicable to IE 11 also

I have given the correct answer.

I have pointed out the exact point (GPP - with IE 10 and 11) - The question is answered correctly

Foxluv also given the perfect pointers

The other answers pointed to IE 11 admin templates which deviated little bit

Hence points should be awarded to me and Foxluv
