Enterprise Site List for IE mode

Sam L Sanders 1 Reputation point

We recently implemented a site list on a workstation where the user has some websites that are still not compatible with newer browsers, and only work with internet explorer. We were able to get the sites to work in IE mode and use a site list, however, the strangest thing happened. When we exited out of Edge, and then went back in, it was as if the site list had vanished. The site list XML file is not changed, and still exists in the same path, which is a folder on the local C drive. When we went back to edge://compat and clicked Force Update, the list reappeared and everything began to work fine again. The issue is if we completely exit from Edge, we have to go back to edge://compat and click Force Update again every time. It isn't keeping the setting when we exit Edge. Does anyone know what to do to fix this? Major appreciation in advance!

    Hi @Sam L Sanders

    I'm able to reproduce the issue by disabling the policy "Configure Internet Explorer integration". Have you correctly set this policy to "Internet Explorer mode"? For more information, you can read this doc.
