    Do you means you want to find compatibility view list in registry? We can find compatibility view list in "Registry Editor". Here is the full path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation\ClearableListData 

    If you want to use c# code to get this list or add a new value to the list. Please refer to this thread

    IE8 Enterprise - Enterprise site mode list

    For public access websites (reachable by the public) you can use x-ua meta or headers to force IE clients to use a lower emulation mode on hosts or individual web pages. There are also compatibility lists that MS maintains...

    check "Include updated website lists from Microsoft" on the Compatibility View Settings dialog.
