IE11 or Internet Explorer version 11, have some serious issues when you use it to work with SharePoint. It feels like, Microsoft, missed a step in the testing process when they launched that browser. Most things that IE11 breaks can be fixed by adding *.domain to the compatibility view. I guess that I am not the only one who is getting frustrated with IE11. I don’t think that adding a domain to compatibility View is the right solution for a company to use IE11 for SharePoint. But unfortunately this is, to the best of my knowledge, the only solution, next to not upgrading you have. I really recommend, not upgrading, if you have SharePoint as your Company Intranet platform.

So I decided to make a list of things that adding the domain to the Compatibility View will fix.

List of SharePoint Issues when using IE11 without Compatibility View:

  1. Issues with editing webparts and gaining access to webpartzones
  2. Issues with SharePoint not saving your changes in Content zones on save
  3. Issues with changing or navigation to pages in InfoPath Forms

List of SharePoint Issues when using IE11 with Compatibility View:

  1. Unable to open InfoPath Forms in browser view

If you have other issues that adding the domain to Compatibility View will fix, please leave a comment and I will update the post.
