Websites that were designed for earlier versions of Internet Explorer
might not display correctly in IE8
, or IE11
. When you turn on Compatibility View
, the webpage you're viewing, as well as any other webpages within the website's domain, will be displayed as if you were using an earlier version of Internet Explorer.
This tutorial will show you how to add (turn on) and remove (turn off) websites to be displayed in Compatibility View.
Not all website display problems are caused by browser incompatibility. Interrupted Internet connections, heavy traffic, or website bugs can also affect how a webpage is displayed.
