Finding Compatibility View in Internet Explorer 11

If you’re using Internet Explorer 11 then some websites may not work properly for whatever reason. In these instances, you may need to add these websites the compatibility view list to have Internet Explorer use an alternative method of rendering the page.

However, IE11 no longer shows the compatibility view button at the end of the address bar which is how you’d normally access and update the list. So, this is how you do it in IE11:

  1. Click the Settings cog in the top right of the browser,
  2. Click Compability View settings,
  3. Add the domain to the list,
  4. Click Close.

I have not yet had to use this feature myself since upgrading as pretty much every website I have visited renders perfectly fine when comparing to other browser but your mileage may vary.
