We've got one single site (intranet site) that doesn't play well with IE 10 unless we add it to IE's Compatibility View Settings. SO if you open IE and go to the menu Tools->Compatibility View Settings you get a pop up menu like so:

enter image description here

If I add the intranet site all is well. However, we need to add this site to everyone's machine in the company. Does anyone know the registry key / value I can use so I can add it to our startup script? If you can point me to the registry key then this would save so much time rather then going to each end user pc and doing this.

URL’s can be added to Compatibility View List in IE 10 by using the following group policy,

User Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Internet Explorer->Compatibility View->Use Policy List of Internet Explorer 7 sites.

If you want to enter this information directly in the registry,

  1. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation\PolicyList (You may create registry folders manually if not present, or a .REG file will create everything for you)

  2. Right Click PolicyList ->New->String Value->Enter the name of the website both under ‘Name’ and ‘Data’ (e.g.

Example REG file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation\PolicyList]

This didn't work with my system. I did find what it did, but not easy to create. One would have to add it to a Compatibility View list and export it from the below area.

Mine created a binary key named "UserFilter" in the following path:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation\ClearableListData

For the example of it create the below entry:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation\ClearableListData]

NOTE: This replaces any existing entries. It would delete them and replace all entries with ONLY this example.

Works fine for my IE9 and Vista. Name should be a URL. Data could be totally ignored or any string of charcters or, better still, your own label.


-> Gmail does not support IE9, but works fine with IE8 and IE10, IE11:

Name =

Data =


Data = Gmail

-> To skip Google search engine popup about "make Google default search engine":

Name =

Data =


Data = Google w/o nuisance popup

-> For banks that insist on older IE versions:

Name =

Data =


Data = 7th Natl Bank
