You may wonder why some users use Windows 8 or Internet Explorer 10 when visiting your site they can see some of the website components are not displayed properly. Those are because in IE10, Microsoft has added some features that might not fully compatible yet with your site.

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE9"/>

Alternatively, if you have a web config file or configuration file, You can specify the setting inside the httpProtocol section. If you are developing the website in Microsoft ASP.Net platform, you must be pretty familiar with this file. It is usually located in the root folder of your website.

<configuration>
  <system.webserver>
    <httpProtocol>
		<customHeaders>
			<add name="X-UA-Compatible" value="IE=EmulateIE9"/>
		</customHeaders>
	</httpProtocol>
  </system.webserver>
</configuration>
