Disabling Compatibility View



Internet Explorer's Compatibility View is a feature which affects how it displays web pages. When enabled, it tends to emulate Internet Explorer 7's behavior in displaying webpages. Since Syrasoft Internet Manager(SIM) does not support Internet Explorer 7, Compatibility View will cause SIM to appear broken.

To configure Internet Explorer to remove SIM from Compatibility View:

  1. Open the Tools menu (Alt+T) and select Compatibility View Settings.
  2. If any site is listed under "Websites you've added to Compatibility View", select them and remove them from the list. E.g., if you have a SIM account hosted at, make sure that "*" is not present in the Compatibility View page list.
  3. With these new settings in place, refresh the SIM page.

Note that if your computer is administered by your organization, you may not be able to access Compatibility View Settings or perform some of these sites. In this event, please begin by contacting your system administrators or help staff for assistance.
