I am using SharePoint 2013 default Master Page seattle. We are also using K2 on our machines and it requires browsers to run on IE 9 or higher mode.

View source reveals that:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html dir="ltr" lang="en-US">
<head><meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft SharePoint" /><meta http-
equiv="Content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" /><meta http-
equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=10" /><meta http-equiv="Expires" 
content="0" /><meta name="msapplication-TileImage" 
content="/_layouts/15/images/SharePointMetroAppTile.png" /><meta 
name="msapplication-TileColor" content="#0072C6" />

I checked the Document mode on F12, it is showing default as IE8 and renders on IE8. How do I force the pages to run on IE10. The same block of code runs fine on dev though. On Dev, I do get the IE10 document mode with same code.

  • The line <meta http- equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=10" /> is the one used to force the pages to render in IE10 mode. Please verify you have published and approved the master after the change. – Venkat Konjeti Jul 14 '17 at 16:21
  • Hi Venkat, Thanks for the suggestion. The master page is published and is approved. It is the default master page and meta tag is present in the master page. – Thisisme.. Jul 14 '17 at 17:19
  • Thank you all for the suggestion. It was Enterprise mode that was forcing IE to load on IE8. Modifying the Policy we were able to revert it to IE10. – Thisisme.. Aug 14 '17 at 19:00

IE 10 screws Up lots of thing. I would either use Chrome or force with IE 11.

<meta http- equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=11" />
