Internet Explorer Compatibility Mode

Websites such as IJJIS that were designed for earlier versions of Windows Internet Explorer might not display correctly in Internet Explorer 9. However, you can often improve how a website will look by using a feature called Compatibility View.

Here's an example of an IJJIS screen:

 

When you turn on Compatibility View, the website you're viewing will be displayed as if you were using an earlier version of Internet Explorer.

Here's the same screen in Compatibility Mode:

If Internet Explorer recognizes a webpage that isn't compatible, you'll see the Compatibility View button on the Address bar:
To turn Compatibility View on, click the Compatibility View button to make the icon change from an outline Picture of the Compatibility View button (off)to a solid color Picture of the Compatibility View button (on).  After switching modes, whenever you visit the IJJIS website, it will be displayed in Compatibility View.
