  • Hi,

    see https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/browser/mt126196.aspx

    If you're on Internet Explorer 10 and upgrading to Internet Explorer 11:

    Use the Enterprise Mode Site List to add sites to the Internet Explorer 5, Internet Explorer 7, and Internet Explorer 10 modes.

    • Sites with the x-ua-compatible meta tag or HTTP header set to "IE=edge" may break in Internet Explorer 11 and need to be set to Internet Explorer 10 mode. This is because "edge" in Internet Explorer 10 meant Internet Explorer 10 mode, but "edge" in Internet Explorer 11 means Internet Explorer 11 mode.
    • If your sites worked in Internet Explorer 10, you won't need IE8 Enterprise Mode or IE7 Enterprise Mode.

    If I understand your question, then to maintain compatibility between IE10 and IE11 versions on your company network then

    change the x-ua meta tag BACK to IE10 (not Edge... since Edge mode is the most standards mode that that version of IE understands.... thus on IE10 Edge means IE10 features sets, and IE11 Edge means IE11 feature sets.)

    and for IE11 workstations modify your Enterprise Site Mode list to use the Edge emulation (IE11). IE10 workstations will not use the Enterprise mode site lists and only honour x-ua meta, header or IE Compatibility settings.

    In either IE10 or IE11 press f12 to display the dev tool, then select the Emulation tab, it will show which emulation the browser is using and how it was established....
