Try IE 11’s Enterprise Mode The Update ships with a new version of IE 11 that supports Enterprise Mode.

To enable Enterprise Mode, run gpedit.msc as Admin, then in Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer, set both “Let users turn on and use Enterprise Mode” and “Use the Enterprise Mode IE website list” to Enabled. Reboot, and in IE, press Alt, then click Tools -> Enterprise Mode.
