Happy New Year 2022 to you all.
Now. How do I switch it to I.E. Mode?

@Kan-Win Go to this special URL: edge://settings/defaultBrowser or navigating to Settings > Default browser, under Internet Explorer compatibility set Allow sites to be reloaded in Internet Explorer mode to Allow:
Some help text from Edge:
We'll show you options to Reload in Internet Explorer mode depending on your recent Internet Explorer usage.
You'll be allowed to reload a page in Internet Explorer mode by selecting Settings and more > Reload in Internet Explorer mode. You can also select Reload tab in Internet Explorer mode when you right-click on a tab, or choose Open link in new Internet Explorer mode tab when you right click on a link.
You won't have the option to Reload in Internet Explorer mode.
You will be asked to restart Edge.
When you want to switch to IE mode, right click on the tab and select Reload tab in Internet Explorer mode:
You can also open a link in IE mode using the right-click menu:
If you use IE mode quite often, you can add the IE mode button to the toolbar by going to edge://settings/appearance or Settings > Appearance, under Customize toolbar > Select which buttons to show on the toolbar enable Internet Explorer mode button:
The tab will use the IE rendering engine and reload the page. The address bar icon becomes the IE icon and a popup shows you more information and controls, allowing you always open this site in IE mode. Note that IE mode will not have the IE interface:
However the right-click menu will be the one used by IE.
This pop-up can be shown again by clicking the IE icon in address bar.
Since Microsoft encourages you to use Edge, the setting Open this page in Internet Explorer mode next time will expire after 30 days. The day you add the page to the list will be counted as day one. You can see when the page will expire in the same settings page as mentioned above:
To clear IE mode browse data you need to go to edge://settings/privacy or Settings > Privacy, search, and services, and choose the appropriate options under Clear browsing data for Internet Explorer:
Since IE mode use the same storage as IE, you will clear data for both of them.
Note: The screenshots are captured using the Development version of Edge in dark mode, so you may not have the exact same screen.
P.S. Feel free to use the feedback button, or press Alt-Shift-I to give your opinions to the Edge team.

Does anyone know how to keep the IE pages from expiring? We have an old IIS application that currently only supports IE. We are working on upgrading the application, but it will take time.

To enable IE mode manually you can refer to my previous post in this thread.
Detailed documentation for configuring IE mode using GPO is available at Configure IE mode Policies | Microsoft Docs
You can use the Enterprise Site List Manager built into Edge to generate the required XML file. Just go to this URL: edge://compat/SiteListManager. Once you are done using the Enterprise Site List Manager, remember to export the XML and save it to a location you specified in the GPO so that all PCs can read it.
