Ok I have few sites and recently our system migrated to Windows 10. Now in Windows 10 we have IE Edge as browser along with IE 11. Now when I open my sharepoint site in Edge it navigates to IE 11 as soon as I type the web address and hit Enter

This is case with sites from one farm. other Farm's sites open In IE Edge if I type there web address. I checked the compatibility settings in master page for the sites and its IE-8 for all the sites in all the Farms. Would like to know what could be the issue. Why it is navigating to IE11 instead of staying at IE Edge.


  • can you change the compatibility mode to IE-Edge and check if the behavior still persists ? – Gautam Sheth Jul 4 '17 at 10:06

  • Now the requirement is to even if the user is in Edge and opens any sharepoint site from edge it should navigate to IE 11 instead o Edge as it is happening with few sites – Ankit Kumar Jul 5 '17 at 12:19
