    E.g. via a group policy you could possibly achieve the mentioned change to IE's settings, but IMO that's not the correct way of approaching the problem. Instead you should troubleshoot your page/web part and consider re-creating it or its functionalities if it's simply bugged. As the blog you linked suggests this isn't (always) an issue for all users, there's likely an external cause (e.g. browser, installed updates, etc.) for the issue. – moe Aug 25 '17 at 11:25
  • I agree with @moe but what's your IE version and the SharePoint version? what I think it's a browser issue in case you are not using Project Server 2010 – Mohamed El-Qassas MVP Aug 25 '17 at 12:24
  • IE 11 and SharePoint 2013 OnPrem – MSA Aug 25 '17 at 12:51
