    One other thing to consider. Along with adding those two websites as trusted exceptions. I also decided to use Bing as my primary search provider becaues IE11 was having so many issues related to Google. Also, because Firfox 24 is my browser of choice, I had no issues in doing so:

    Dear TonyB,
    For the last several days..I've been using google chrome, as you mentioned, at least gmail works correctly with it. As I mentioned previously, at least right now I wish I'd never upgraded to windows 8.1.

    This is a "School boys stuff" from Google and MS, whenever I asked for a solution in MS community forums and Google support forum, I got the suggestions either to try a different browser or use a different mail provider, but I have categorically refused their suggestions and they gave in, sorted the problem, Gmail works as it should be, me=1 tech support=0

    I'd be a happy camper if I could just get gmail to load correctly in internet explorer 11 desktop version. As I stated previously, it worked normally before I upgraded to 8.1.

    Dear David B.,
    I changed the two setting you suggested, at least now..part of the gmail page loads correctly, but 'parts' of it are still missing. Such as the logout button, and the additional info. that normally shows on the left hand side of the page, chat , etc. .

    @David Bailey. Hey friend, sounds like the OP is half way home based on your latest suggestion. I'd rep you for that; however, I'm all repped out for the day already but I'll save one for ya!
