I want to help her about this. But i can't soluton. She use Edge IE mode to visit tax department web in her laptop. But in the company tax web two URL button can't to click. I use my laptop try visit this web in Edge IE mode. Unlike her, I can click on those two URL buttons and access them. I don't understand why this is happening, same version of OS, same version of Edge.
So I tried to figure out how we were different place. I find some different places :

1.Use Edge IE mode visit same web page, my laptop show IE11 , her latop show IE 5/7

  1. My laptop show protected mode is on. Her laptop is off.
  2. In my laptop's Edge show Internet Explorer Mode API Version 17. Her Api version is 13.
  3. In Window system Set Optional features page, my IE mode size is 3.28MB. Her size is 1.63MB

All in all, the situation is shown in the diagram. I'd really appreciate it if you could help me.

Thank you very much.

    Hi @俊宇 徐

    It seems that you neither configure IE mode group policy nor use IE mode local site list experience. I think you're using IE mode by clicking 192866-image.png. Correct me if there's anything wrong.

    In this situation, the different results in IE mode may be related with the Internet Explorer mode API version. I suggest that you can check if there's any Windows updates and install the latest Windows updates, then reinstall IE mode feature in Windows Optional features to see if it can fix the issue.

    If it still can't fix the issue, I suggest that you can refer to this doc to configure IE mode using group policies and put the tax website in Enterprise Mode Site List. The steps are like below:

    1. Enable Internet Explorer integration using Group Policy
    2. Configure the Enterprise Mode Site List

    For how to create the Enterprise Mode Site List, you can refer to this doc. You need to load the tax website in IE11 Compatibility mode in Edge IE mode, the sample sites list file is like below:

    <site-list version="6">  
        <date-created>04/14/2022 06:55:16</date-created>  
      <site url="www.your_tax_website.com">  
        <open-in allow-redirect="true">IE11</open-in>
