Last Modified: 2016-10-13

A user has moved PC - and in IE 11 the menu inside the browser - not the IE menu does not appear

I'm just after peoples take on - what generally would be the reason for this? - its an IIS site on server 2012

is it something to do with java - the user logs in ok on 2nd PC - but just doesnt see the menu?

1. Can you post some of the html associated with the menu?
2. Also, has the user tried clearing the browser cache?
3. Does this happen when using with FF or Chrome?
