Internet Explorer 11 - Enterprise Mode

Internet Explorer 11 includes the opportunity to use the browser in the so-called Enterprise Mode which allows the use of old web applications.

Start using this mode as follows:

  • Press the ALT key. A toolbar appears at the top of the browser.
  • Open the Tools menu and choose Enterprise Mode.

When Enterprise Mode is active, the following icon shows at the beginning of Internet Explorer's address bar:

If you want to switch off the Enterprise Mode, you have to be on exactly the same page as where you were when you enabled the mode: E.g., and are different pages even if they have the same content.
