IE11 or Internet Explorer version 11, have some serious issues when you use it to work with SharePoint. It feels like, Microsoft, missed a step in the testing process when they launched that browser. Most things that IE11 breaks can be fixed by adding *.domain to the compatibility view. I guess that I am not the only one who is getting frustrated with IE11. I don’t think that adding a domain to compatibility View is the right solution for a company to use IE11 for SharePoint. But unfortunately this is, to the best of my knowledge, the only solution, next to not upgrading you have. I really recommend, not upgrading, if you have SharePoint as your Company Intranet platform.
So I decided to make a list of things that adding the domain to the Compatibility View will fix.
List of SharePoint Issues when using IE11 without Compatibility View:
- Issues with editing webparts and gaining access to webpartzones
- Issues with SharePoint not saving your changes in Content zones on save
- Issues with changing or navigation to pages in InfoPath Forms
List of SharePoint Issues when using IE11 with Compatibility View:
- Unable to open InfoPath Forms in browser view
If you have other issues that adding the domain to Compatibility View will fix, please leave a comment and I will update the post.
