Hello everyone,

Is there a way that you can globally change the IE settings for users to not detect intranet sites? we are having an issue with some users that are using Internet explorer because, thinks our website is an intranet site and somehow changes the settings to a compatibility view. We have a fix for it but its only on individual computers. is there a way to create something to go to everyone and change there settings to exclude our website in intranet sites settings.
We do not want to change the default browser or remove IE. some users prefer using IE over others.
