The IE browser is about to be replaced by EDGE (our company no longer allows the use of IE), there is a very important problem that needs your help urgently.

There are some very important websites in my work that need to be added to the [Compatibility View] list of the IE browser to open normally, but I can't find this option in the new EDGE browser, there is no previous IE compatibility view setting option, may I ask How to deal with it?

Note: I'm looking for the "Compatibility View Settings" option, not "Internet Explorer Mode Pages". The website needs to be added to Compatibility View for the URL to be accessed normally. please add the two URLs "cccf.com.cn" and "safe.gov.cn", thank you.

    Hi @Qin, Yan Eric

    There's no compatibility view in Edge. The only way you can try is to run the website in Edge IE mode. Edge IE mode supports all document modes and enterprise modes. You can try different IE document modes in Edge and check which one is suitable for the sites.

    我也遇到过这种情况,公司有些网站必须在Compatibility View中打开,安装win11后没有IE,在edge Compatibility Mode下打开也有问题,由于公司是proxy上网,后来发现在Internet option->connections->lan settings->proxy server中设置一个proxy(公司内网是设置例外,实际上是不走代理的,随便设置一个不存在的ip也可以),之前须在Compatibility View中打开的网站就正常浏览了,把proxy server取消勾选后,必须在Compatibility View中打开网站又有问题,不知道是为什么

    So far I have assumed that IE mode in Edge will just use all of the existing IE settings.

    I was wondering how the compatibility view settings could be accessed once IE is gone.

    So my assumption was that the compatibility view settings are effective, but inaccessible via GUI.

    But reading the comments here it seems like IE mode is already ignoring the compatibility view settings? Can you confirm this?

    EDIT:
    I cannot confirm this. I could see on http://browserspy.dk/useragent.php that adding/removing the site to the compatibility view list in IE will change the result in IE mode in Edge. That means that the settings still apply, but there is no GUI to change them anymore.

    EDIT2:
    I just noticed the "compatibility view" toggle in the site information. It will add/remove the site from the list in IE. How could I miss that?

    EDIT3:
    I missed it because that option will not show when a site in on the Enterprise Mode site list. Even when the mode is "Default mode" and the compatibility view setting will still influence the selected mode. Solution is to explicitly set a document mode on the site list, then the local CV setting will be ignored for that site.
