Determine if site is loading based on setting from Enterprise Mode XML file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We're using Enterprise Mode to have some sites load correctly now that we've finally updated to IE11.  But we're having an issue testing sites trying to figure out if the page is loading correctly based on XML file.  I know if I chose IE7 or 8 Enterprise mode the icon on the address bar will change to two buildings (that's what it looks like to me).  But if I select IE5-11 document mode, the icon does not change.  How do I tell if browser is downloading the XML file and loading the page to the mode set on XML if I choose document mode option, regardless of which version?  Also where does Windows cache the XML file locally?

    Thank you,
