    How to Fix Google Search and Google+ Notifications Not Loading Properly in Internet Explorer 11 (IE11)

    information   Information
    The issue was that Google's search engine has somehow been added to the Microsoft compatibility lists for IE11. This causes the Google Search page to load in legacy mode, and not displaying properly in IE11.

    Now it appears that your Google+ notifications will not load on the Google Search page unless you turn off using Microsoft compatibility lists for IE11 as well.

    In Windows 8.1, this is happening in both modern and desktop IE11 views.

    UPDATE: (October 21st 2013)

    Microsoft has fixed the issue with Google Search results not rendering properly, but your Google+ notifications still do not load on the Google Search page.

    It appears Google made some changes to its search engine that temporarily impacted the way search results rendered for some browsers. We have already made the necessary adjustments to ensure customers using Internet Explorer are not impacted.

    UPDATE: (October 23rd 2013)

    Microsoft has now fixed these issues by removing Google services from the compatibility lists.

    If you still are having the Google Search rendering or Google+ notifications issue in Internet Explorer 11 (IE11), then this tutorial will show you a workaround to fix it so that they will load properly again in IE11.
