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.
