    IE 11 Compatibility View Settings

    Hi

    Thought I would start a new thread for this issue, although related to my last post.

    Seems I cannot find a way to control the Compatibility View Settings in IE 11 centrally through group policy

    Does anyone have a way to overcome this ?

    Seems that we have quite a few sites that need adding to compatibility list to work properly.

    Thanks

    Hi
    Cheers.

    Am not sure if this is actually for Server 2012.

    My current group policy does not seem to manage IE 11.

    I had to start using Group policy preferences.

    I will have a look now

    it appears that the item

    Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Compatibility View

    does not exist in classic administrative templates.

    So I presume I need a new template for IE11, but am unsure

    It does for me, with Windows 7 RSAT. The item is under User Configuration/Policies/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Internet Explorer/Compatibility View.

    What OS are you looking at Group Policy under?

    I am logging into Server 2008 R2 and using gpmc.msc

    That's the view of my path in gpmc.msc

    User Configuration/Policies/Classic Administrative Templates(ADM)/Windows Components/Internet Explorer/??

    Not classic administrative templates. Just administrative templates.

    Thanks for help

    Hmm I must be missing something as I do not have this option.

    Any particular admx files I should be installing for this that you know of?

    This lot by any chance
    Download Administrative Templates (ADMX) for Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 from Official Microsoft Download Centre

    Included as default on my machines. Do you have IE11 installed on the server you're working with?

    No. I need to service pack 1 it before I can put IE11 on.

    worried it might screw server up so been procrastinating, and getting time can be tricky.

    No alternatives?
