If you use Internet Explorer 8 or higher on campus, you may have noticed that our Web site still displays a notice to upgrade to Internet Explorer 8. This is because Microsoft chose to benefit enterprise users by defaulting any Web site that is on an intranet to display in Compatibility View, and it cannot be overwitten by the webite. Instead, the user must take a few short steps to enable standards view in their browser.
Option 1: Add this site to your trusted sites
If you simply wish to disable compatibility view for www.semo.edu and no other sites on the semo.edu domain, this is the simplest option.
If you are using Internet Explorer 9, click the gear icon at the top right of your browser and choose Internet Options.
If you are using Internet Explorer 8, click the Tools menu at the top right of your browser and choose Internet Options.
In both versions of Internet Explorer, navigate to the Security tab and choose Trusted Sites from the list. Click the Sites button to bring up a list of your currently trusted sites.
Next, uncheck the box labeled Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone if it is checked. Click the Add button to add http://www.semo.edu to your trusted sites list.
Click Close in the Trusted Sites pane, and Ok in the Internet Options pane. Now, every time you load a page from the Southeast Web site, it should display properly.
Option 2: Disable compatibility view for intranet sites
If you wish to disable compatibility view for all sites on the semo.edu domain, this is the best option. However, if another site relies on compatibility view, this could break that site.
While in an Internet Explorer window, hold the Alt key on your keyboard, and press T and then B in quick succession. This should bring up the Compatibility View Settings pane.
Uncheck the box labeled Display intranet sites in Compatibility View and click the Close button. Now, every time you load a page from the Southeast Web site, it should display properly. In addition, every time you load a page from any Web site on the semo.edu domain, it will not use Compatibility View.
Option 3: Choose a new browser
If you wish to use a different Web browser and have a better, faster Internet experience, a new Web browser costs nothing and takes very little time to install. Visit this page to try a new browser.
