How to enable IE mode on Microsoft Edge

I have tried the below steps:

  1. Open Microsoft Edge on Windows 10.
  2. Click the Settings and More (ellipsis) button on the top-right corner.
  3. Select the Settings option.
  4. Click on Default browser.
  5. Under the “Internet Explorer compatibility” section, turn on the “Allow sites to be reloaded in Internet Explorer mode” toggle switch.
  6. Click the Restart button.

I am not seeing "Allow sites to be reloaded in Internet Explorer mode” toggle switch in Edge browser.

Microsoft Edge Version 91.0.864.54 (Official build) (64-bit)

Is there any way to enable it as my website is only supported in IE?

I appreciate any pointer in this regard.

Thank you

    May be you can try below line of code just after the HEAD tag, to work on the EDGE browser.

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />
    <meta content="IE=EmulateIE10" http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible">

    We have done the same thing on our website https://seowebchecker.com/ , and it is working.

    Hi @Sandeep Gupta

    From this article, we can find the reason we can't see Allow sites to be reloaded in Internet Explorer:

    If you are on a device managed by your organization you will NOT see the option to Allow sites to be reloaded in Internet Explorer under edge://settings/defaultbrowser to allow Internet Explorer mode through the More tools menu.

    In this situation, you can set your site to be opened in IE mode by configuring IE mode policies. For the detailed steps, you can refer to this doc.
    There're two steps required to configure IE mode:

    1. Configure Internet Explorer integration
    2. Redirect sites from Microsoft Edge to IE mode

    Hi @Sandeep Gupta

    You can use this video to guide you from scratch on how to enable IE mode. If your environment is AD domain based, there is also series on how to implement that using group policy.

    Hi All,

    Not sure but I was working on the same issue yesterday and found this URL useful:

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/ie11-deploy-guide/turn-on-enterprise-mode-and-use-a-site-list

    I have gone through the docs and if test the solution in my lab environment then would surely share in it..
