1. Open your web page in Internet Explorer mode within Edge

2. Press Windows Key + R

3. Enter %systemroot%\system32\f12\IEChooser.exe and click Ok to run

4. Select your page detected in IE mode

5. In the Developer Tools window that just opened, click to the "Emulation" tab

6. Here you can change the "Document Mode" between 11, 10, 9, 8, etc.

Hi, it's not working I've followed the step by step and chose the IE 11 save and restarted the Edge and when I open the application the IE compatibility is set to IE 7, why microsoft makes this too hidden and dificult to dealing with? is it not more easy to let me choose in Edge what version I desire when I click in IE compatibility button?

@marden_dba Hi, any updates on this...? I have the same issue. A different page opens in IE11 but the other one in IE7 mode :(
