GPO for compatibility mode



  • A previous admin created a gpo to alter and add an entry under the hive HKEY_CURRENT_USER in Key path Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Ranges\Range66 which forces a single entry for compatibility mode. I've spent a lot of time testing and, while the setting is to apply once and not again, it doesn't seem to allow a user to add more sites to compatibility mode and keep that addition after a reboot.

    Has anyone successfully created a GPO for IE11 to enable CM for users to add items, while also pushing a list of our own? Is there a best method around for achieving this goal?

    No. We have a GPO at one client with stupid settings for IE11 like this and that is an issue we also have.

    I have not, I only keep adding it through GPO (In the medical field which they have many sites as this).



  • Does wildcard work ie11 compatibility mode?
    http://*
    https://*

    And then use chrome or Firefox for everything else.

    That's a little... Insecure.

    True, but so is using IE too.

    Ditto - Just have to keep adding them via GPO. So glad we barely use IE 11 anymore.
