Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 Troubleshooting

For any of the GHIN web pages to work correctly in Internet Explorer 11, the pages must use Compatibility View settings built into I.E.

To set the proper Compatibility View settings, please follow these steps:

Step 1 – Open Internet Explorer 11 and go to the webpage in question.

Step 2 – Click on the
‘gear’ icon near the upper right side of the browser window. (see screenshot)

Step 3 – Next, click on the option "Compatibility View settings" in the drop down list.

Step 4 – In the pop up window for Compatibility View Settings you should see the website listed in the "Add this website" field. Click the Add button to add this website to the Compatibility View list. Your Compatibility Window should have and in the list in order for Explorer 11 to be compatible with GHP and TPP website programming. If you need to add an additional site just type in the site names you need and click Add to add more names.

Step 5 – Click the

You can do these same steps for any website that appears to be acting strangely compared to your experience prior to updating to Internet Explorer 11.
