Windows 7: Compatibility Icon

13 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7
Compatibility Icon

We have a web site under development that does not work if in compatibility mode.

Is there any way to add code when going to that site to make sure that compatibility mode is off?

Is there any setting that makes IE9 recognize that the site does not need compatibility mode. The reason I ask is that because when we look at the site on one system, the compatibility icon shows next to the refresh icon, but when we look at it on a different system the compatibility icon is not there.
