    IE not displaying websites correctly

    When I surf using IE 11 under windows8, I routinely run into problems where sites are not displayed correctly. See attached, a yahoo page. Items overlap, or just flat out never show (blank areas)..

    I've checked compatibility settings.. Is there anything else I can do to show these pages correctly? IE under Windows7 shows them correctly..

    Hello 3DPiper,

    I know you said that you checked compatibility settings, but did you try using compatibility view on the site to see if it may display better afterwards?

    Yes, I have compatibility view active for this site (
    The problem persists and is very aggravating, it completely keeps me from reading pages (see pic)
    could this be the an issue with a HiDPI screen?

    That site below appears to be displaying fine for me in the desktop IE11.

    You might see if completely resetting IE back to default may help.

    I am also using IE11 in desktop mode under W8, but the yahoo movies page does not display correctly for me..

    I'll try a reset and see if that fixes the problem

    I would suggest something but will wait to see if the reset works or not.

    I've never found in any use for Microsoft's compatibility view lists,
    Remove them and retest,
