Internet Explorer settings not applying

    Question

  • Hi, this is my situation. Our DC is Win2008 SP2 x86 both Primary and Secondary. We have a requirement for all of our users. 

    First is to add some list of websites to be excluded from pop-up, second is to add some sites in compatibility list.

    So I added this sites in the following:

    Computer Config>Admin Templates>Windows Comp>Internet Explorer>Pop-up allow list

    User Config>Preferences>Control Panel Settings>Internet Settings>Internet Explorer 7

    Not sure if I lack something but both of these policies are not applying in my network. 

    Our IE version is 11.

    Thanks

    Jeff

  • Hi,
     
    To add web site to Compatibility View List, you might want to take a look at this blog post and follow the steps mentioned in it:
     
    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/asiatech/archive/2013/10/23/how-to-add-web-site-to-compatibility-view-list-via-gpo.aspx
     
    Please note that if you deploy these from Administrative Templates via GPO, both changes do not get reflected in IE user interface.
     
    You can check corresponding regstry keys on client machine to verify the changes:
     
    Compatibility View List: HKCU(HKLM)\Software\[Wow6432Node]\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation\PolicyList
    Popup Allow List: HKCU/software/policies/microsoft/Internet Explorer/new windows/allow
     
    Also, run "GPresult /h c:\result.html" to see if the GPO has been applied correctly.

  • Sounds like you have figured out the pop-up allow list.

    The compatibility mode is here: Computer Configuration > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Compatibility View: use policy list of Internet Explorer 7 sites - enter the sites there. 

    If that doesn't fix the sites in question, you may want to explore Enterprise Mode Site List Manager. I use that for the "stubborn," really old websites that no one has updated in years. You can bust the site all the way down to IE5 document mode. See this link for more information:
