How to Turn On or Off Enterprise Mode for Sites in Internet Explorer 11

information   Information
Enterprise Mode, a compatibility mode that runs on Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1 Update and Windows 7 devices, lets websites render using a modified browser configuration that’s designed to avoid the common compatibility problems associated with web apps written and tested on older versions of Internet Explorer, like Internet Explorer 8 and older.

For more information about IE11 Enterprise Mode, see:

This tutorial will show you how to turn on and off Enterprise Mode for sites in Internet Explorer 11 for your account in Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 Update.

Note   Note
Windows 8.1 Update will be released on April 8th 2014 via Windows Update.

Enterprise Mode is only available for the desktop Internet Explorer in Windows 8.1 Update. It is not available in the modern Internet Explorer.

When you turn on Enterprise Mode for a website, that website will always be viewed in Enterprise Mode in the desktop IE11 whenever you open that site until you turn Enterprise Mode off for the site.

Tip   Tip
If you like, you could test turning on and off IE11 Enterprise Mode for the test site below optimized for IE8 to see the differences.
