IE11 issues

    Question

  • After Microsoft automatically downloads IE11 our school teachers can not longer open gradbooks, watch flash videos, and exchange reverts to light version and will not change back.  Is there a fix yet for any of these besides removing the update of IE11, which is what I have been doing.

  • Hi,

    In addition to use the compatibility view.

    Open IE>Tools>click Compatibility View>Add the site to the list.

    we can also try the methods below.

    Add-ons let you watch videos on sites, but incompatible or out-of-date add-ons might prevent sites from displaying correctly. So make sure the latest add-ons are installed and enabled.

    For more information, please see:

    Manage add-ons in Internet Explorer

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/internet-explorer/manage-add-ons#ie=ie-11-win-7

    Besides, we can try turn off Hardware acceleration, it uses your PC's GPU to speed up graphics-heavy tasks like video streaming or online gaming. Turning this off might help solve display problems.

    Open IE>Tools>Internet Options>Advanced>check the box use software rending instead of GPU rendering in the Accelerated graphics.

    If the methods all not work, try to reinstall the IE11 for test.

    Install or uninstall Internet Explorer

    Have you tried using the Developer Tools Emulation tab (F12, Ctrl-8) to find a compatibility view which works?  Unfortunately, if you find one which is better than IE7 you will not be able to let it persist without reusing the DT to set it.  However, if IE7 is good enough you can add the site to the Compatibility View Settings  (Alt-T b).  Make sure that you are using Microsoft's Compatibility list in case the emulation you need is already being listed in IECompatData.xml.  If not, you could try reporting the problem here:

    http://www.modern.ie/en-us/compat-issue-report

    Then you would be starting a race between the site developer and Microsoft to see who would respond more quickly to your needs, the site developer to work to web standards (or provide an automatic emulation override) or Microsoft to add the site to its list of sites that still require an emulation override.

  • IE 11 won't open OWA from Exchange 2007 or practically any school specific apps we use. So it's Microsoft pushing out incompatible browser updates to web users. I could see it being the other way around for v10 release, but not here. It's infuriating and embarrassing to champion these technologies only to get slapped like this. It is simply incomprehensible that it doesn't support OWA out of the chute.

  • seriously, whenever you having problem with ie, use alternate browser to get whatever you want to do to get it done, like google chrome or firefox.

    it's very in-productive to troubleshoot ie issue, unless you are being paid for the work.
