changing enterprise mode to IE11

We have a website, once we try to open it, we have issues but when we go to developer tools and select IE11 it works. How can we change that mode

Try to make the server to add the following HTTP header:
X-UA-Compatible: IE=edge
or/and put to the site's pages the following HTML element:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />

Can I add something like this to xml

<site url="">
I'm not familiar with SharePoint, but there should be a way to add custom headers to its responses.
Please check the following article:

if that website running in IE11 not on IE8 enterprise mode is the above code is ok?
I hope you have access to the web server, right? So, the goal is to make the server to instruct the IE browser, in every response, always switch to the very latest browser compatibility mode ("edge", which is not the browser name, but means the very latest IE engine). Nobody can be sure is that ok or not. Some site developed only to work with old IE, some only with new, some both. Depends on your particular web site implementation. But since you said, you had issues with not the IE11 mode (which is the latest, i.e. the "edge"), it makes sense to make IE always work in such mode whatever its setting and configuration is. So, if you make your web server to add that HTTP header to every request, the IE browser the end user uses should switch to the IE11 mode. Older IE browses should switch to the latest compatibility mode they support.
Please indicate if I understood your problem not correctly.

Used Enterprise mode site manager to create xml and saved that on network.
IE points to xml and uses required mode.
