A previous admin created a gpo to alter and add an entry under the hive HKEY_CURRENT_USER in Key path Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Ranges\Range66 which forces a single entry for compatibility mode. I've spent a lot of time testing and, while the setting is to apply once and not again, it doesn't seem to allow a user to add more sites to compatibility mode and keep that addition after a reboot.
Has anyone successfully created a GPO for IE11 to enable CM for users to add items, while also pushing a list of our own? Is there a best method around for achieving this goal?
I have not, I only keep adding it through GPO (In the medical field which they have many sites as this).
Ditto - Just have to keep adding them via GPO. So glad we barely use IE 11 anymore.
The shear fact that they use a non default user shows that they probably have an above average ability to use their computer, which could be helpful in their job.
It's been a while since I've seen a company that had IE set as a default.
Same. Chrome is so easy to deploy with Group Policy and has just as much control as IE if not more. Now firefox doesn't (or didn't) pull it's proxy settings from the system so that can be an issue with some content filters.
As much as I hate Chrome it is supported by our EHR vendor where FF is not... might be time to look into using it.
Though we'll still have to keep IE around for the hospitals.
