How to Import and Export Compatibility View Websites in Internet Explorer

information   Information
Websites that were designed for earlier versions of Internet Explorer might not display correctly in the IE8, IE9, and IE10. When you turn on Compatibility View, the webpage you're viewing, as well as any other webpages within the website's domain, will be displayed as if you were using an earlier version of Internet Explorer.

This tutorial will show you how to import (restore) and export (backup) all of the websites that you have added to Compatibility View in your Internet Explorer.
