How do I Fix Website Display Problems with Compatibility View?


Question

How do I fix a website display problem with compatibility view?

Answer

All faculty, staff and students have the ability to utilize the compatibility view settings in Internet Explorer.

 

  1. Open Internet Explorer.
     
  2. Click the "Tools" button, and then select "Compatibility View Settings."

    IE Tools
     
  3. Under "Add this website," enter the URL of the site you want to add to the list, and then click "Add."

    Compatibility View settings

 

*Please note: Some older sites either do not display properly or will not load in newer browsers. This might be caused by a compatibility problem between the browser and the site you're on and can often be fixed by adding the site to your Compatibility View list on Internet Explorer. If you add a site to the Compatibility View list and the page looks worse, the problem might not be compatibility and you should remove the site from the list. Once you turn on Compatibility View, Internet Explorer will automatically show that site in Compatibility View each time you visit. You can turn it off by removing it from your Compatibility View list.
