We’d like to discourage users from using Internet Explorer 10 compatibility mode. Please turn off the compatibility view mode and if applicable, report any issues that may arise with reports, forms or printing. We want everyone using Internet Explorer 10 to not have to switch back and forth between the compatibility view modes but it may be necessary to use compatibility view temporarily while we accommodate problems that have been reported, such as the additional pages when printing. (Expanding text box arrows) To turn on/off Compatibility view you can use the Internet menu bar if you have it enabled. Select “Tools” and click on the “Compatibility view” option. Or, to the right of the address there is an icon that looks like a torn page.

If it is gray, then compatibility view is turned off. You will just need to click the torn page to activate and the icon will turn blue.
