Windows 7: program compatibility problem and windows explorer does not show icon

program compatibility problem and windows explorer does not show icon

When I browse job sites like monster, I get a message that there is a compability problem. It then tells me
to click on my internet explorer icon to fix compatability program. So I am confused on what to do to fix this...I don't have a windows icon to click on, but when I go to windows explorer it says I have the latest
version? I admit to being computer illiterate ( I am taking classes on word, excel and windows os)
Sure would appreciate some help! Thanks in advance.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Open Internet explorer,
Go to the site with the issue,
Once on the site Press and hold down the Alt key on your keyboard,
Then at the same time press the T key
Then simply click on Compatibility view settings,
If your already on the site,
It will already be listed in the add box,
Simply click on the Add button then the Close button,

Close Internet explorer and re-open and go back to the site and test.
Cheers.
