Change the IE Compatibility Mode manually

We can set HTML rendering mode using Meta Tag.

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=5" />

This is set compatible mode to IE-5, like wise there are few modes we can set using a meta tag.



content="IE=5" - force to render in “Quirks” mode.

content="IE=7" - forces to render in IE 7 Strict mode.

content="IE=EmulateIE7" - use !DOCTYPE declaration to detect rendering mode

content="IE=8" -   forces to render Internet Explorer Standards mode.

content="IE=EmulateIE8" - use !DOCTYPE declaration to detect rendering mode

content="edge" - use most recent mode

We can use  Web Config to alter the page rendering mode
