  • No, they can run windows update manually and install selected updates. Or a server administrator can push updates to the network if the whole network is set up to download from a local server instead of Microsoft's.

    2 I have no idea, especially when you can uncheck "include updated web site lists from Microsoft" in CV settings. The IE forum on answers.microsoft.com may have more experts on how to use IE.

  • Sheng Jiang-

    Ok, so Compatibility View updates are done always through Windows Update?

    Is it safe to say that a user with Automatic Updates disabled will never get their Compatibility View list updated?

    Thanks!

  • Just a tip I use with Compatibility view. You can go into Compatibility view settings and manually add a web address or you can even check a option to show all sites in compatibility mode. I tell some users of IE 9 to select this option if their web surfing seems to lead them to many incompatible sites.
