Have you tried the compatibility modes?
Press F12 and look around.

To the best of my memory Windows 7 will not allow that to happen.
Hang in there another member might have a trick.
I.E. 9 is very unsafe to use.

Change whatever works for you. It won't be perfect, but it might work.

I would have given you more details, but I don't have IE11 on the computer that I'm on :-(

Developer tools has to remain open or the change will revert back to Edge mode,
Cheers.

IE11 should be in your list of installed windows updates, just un install it.

Windows 7 comes with IE8, you can not have it go to IE7.

Your system specs are not complete. You have not told us how much RAM your computer has.

Since you have Windows 7 pro, use this...

Windows XP Mode - Install and Setup

...and you will also have XP and IE6 or IE7 or IE8 running inside of a window for free.

My personal preference is to setup the XP Mode like you like it and then freeze it. Freezing means that when you exit the Virtual Machine (VM), all changes to the VM are dropped. Any infection that gets into the VM will go away when you exit the VM. I would also remove the connection to the host computer. In other words, I would not let the XP OS get to the hard drive of the host computer..... but that's just me.
