How to view Google search results when using IE11 in Windows 8.1?

blackdog

Since the update to Windows 8.1, Internet Explorer 11 doesn’t seem to be compatible with Google. I mean google search, the website, the one where pretty much everyone searches for everything, including me. Now it just displays a jumble of text and links, a total mess. I tried Firefox on the same PC and Google was fine. Anyone else experienced this?

I think the issue may have been fixed already, so try again. For a couple of days there were apparently compatibility issues, although I’m not sure what the exact problem was. Microsoft said it was Google’s fault for making some changes without telling them. If it still isn’t working properly, try hitting ALT+X while in IE11, then go to Compatibility View Settings, and uncheck “Use Microsoft Compatibility List.”
