Enterprise Mode: Enable but do not let user disable

Q: Enterprise Mode: Enable but do not let user disable

I'm in the midst of reconfiguring IE Enterprise mode for a customer. Here's the current state:

There is a site list at http://ieem.internal.domain/production.xmlThe site list is readable by all users and contains the correct current list of sites and rendering modes (maintained by the Site Manager tool)Active Group Policy settings:Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Use the Enterprise Mode IE website list: Enabled, Location = http://ieem.internal.domain/production.xmlUser Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Use the Enterprise Mode IE website list: Enabled, Location = http://ieem.internal.domain/production.xml
If I browse to a site in the Site List, Enterprise Mode is not enabled.
If I now set EITHER of these policy settings:

Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Let users turn on and use Enterprise Mode from the Tools Menu: Enabled; ORUser Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Let users turn on and use Enterprise Mode from the Tools Menu: Enabled;
the user is still not forced into Enterprise Mode. However, they can turn on Enterprise Mode manually and the site list appears to apply correctly (as long as they turn it on on a page where it's supposed to be on - otherwise they get Enterprise
mode enabled for whatever URL they were viewing when they turn EM on in addition to the site list).
We do not want users to be able to change the settings for Enterprise Mode. We only want the site list to apply, consistently, to all users. We cannot find any setting for "Force users to use Enterprise Mode" or similar.
We also do not believe Microsoft would create this without a way to enforce the policy to on - an organisation of 5 users isn't a problem, an organisation of 5000 can't afford the 5000 helpdesk calls to enable this manually.
I therefore believe I am missing something, but I cannot see what. Suggestions and questions welcomed!

Preferred Solution: Enterprise Mode: Enable but do not let user disable

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

We are using Group Policy to issue an XML file with a list of sites for IE 11 to load in Enterprise mode.  We added our payroll company site because they were not compatible with IE 11, now they are ONLY compatible with IE 11.  I removed their
URL from the XML list over a week ago, but all company computers are still loading it in Enterprise mode.  I can have everyone turn it off manually, but the problem is they use so many subdomains that everyone would have to do it numerous times.  Why
is that happening?  I need to force this site and its subdomains to NOT load in Enterprise Mode.  It seems that when the URL was removed from the XML list it no longer forced it, but it also did not remove that setting.
 

A:Removing a site from Enterprise Model XML list for IE 11 does not disable enterprise mode for that site

Hi,
No event error doesn't indicate the policy is applied fine. If the new configuration didn't work, the most probably reason was the group policy was not applied.
You could rest your Internet Explorer 11 and then restart the compute to check the result.
If it still doesn't work, run "gpresult /h gpreport.html" command to saves the report in HTML format with the file name "gpreport.html" at C:\Windows\System32\ directory.
Open this file to check if this group policy was applied successfully.Please remember to mark the replies as answers if they help, and unmark the answers if they provide no help. If you have feedback for TechNet Support, contact [email protected]

I can't use GP to enable Enterprise Mode in MS Edge as we have old AD (not sure if this can be fixed by adding some admx). 2008 Server (not even R2).
I have already enabled Enterprise Mode for IE11 via registry and it works fine on Windows 10. I have found an article (updated a month ago). Which mentions
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\MicrosoftEdge\Main\EnterpriseMode registry to enable it in Edge. But i don't have such registry on 1607 build. The article
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/itpro/microsoft-edge/emie-to-improve-compatibility
So, has this registry moved somewhere else, or maybe it was removed recently? Is there any other way to enable EM for Edge other than GP?

Yesterday I ran into a problem on a vendor's support portal. IE11 would just crash when I tried to go to the case management section. I am running some testing of Enterprise Mode and I have the Enterprise Mode option available in IE11's Tools menu under
my profile, so I put that site into Enterprise Mode via that method. This ended up causing a problem where the site just keeps bouncing between two different URLs very rapidly, and this doesn't allow me enough time to go into the Tools menu to remove the site
from Enterprise Mode.
Is there some alternate place, such as the registry, where I can remove this site from Enterprise Mode.

Hi,

I need a script/batch file that I can click to quickly

enable/disable a user.

How can I do this?

A:Script to disable/enable a user

A one-liner bat file can do that pretty easy. This will do the trick:

To enable a user:

Code:
net user username /active:yes
To disable it:

Code:
net user username /active:no
Where username is the username to enable/disable.
This requires administrator permission to succeed.

Some reference can be found here:

Hi all,

I'm setting up a computer for public access to a local site (repository). There are two accounts:

1.admin account: running a virtual machine as server for the local site. I need access to LAN through wired ethernet in this account
2.public account: the account for the users to navigate the repository. I need to disable the LAN access and just enable internet access through the public wireless interface.

I thought I could just disable ethernet card for the public account on the Group policies, but I didn't find out the way to do it. I've created a group policy for the public account; but under "user configuration -> administrative templates -> network -> network connections" I only see options for enable/disable LAN properties, settings, etc., and not LAN access itself.

---> Is it possible to disbable hardware for specifc users? In that case I could just disable the wired card driver for public user

Thanks in advance!

A:Disable LAN connection for specific user/enable wireless only

Ok, I go again (trying to do my best in english!) :

-There are two interfaces in the network:
a- LAN-> access through wired connection. Only for enabled MACs on the router
b- Public access to internet -> through wireless connection. For everyone.

-I cannot use router rules (for instance blocking MAC address, time settings, etc.) as far as I need both connections enabled at the same time, any time: wired for admin account and wireless for standard user account. Both users could use the computer at any time.

-I know I can set up preferred connections, but what I actually want is to prevent any way for the standard user to get connected to the LAN.

-On Group policies I've already disabled access to network settings and IE options for the standard user.

I appreciate any help (and really need it). Thanks!!

Hi,
This should be the implementation guide to IE11 enterprise mode list.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/ie11-deploy-guide/check-for-new-enterprise-mode-site-list-xml-file


My main question: in IE11, using F12 you see only document mode (Edge, IE10, 9 ...) but in Enterprise mode list, you can see
other options (screenshot). That's confusing. Why these enterprise modes AND document mode? What is the difference and why does the client only have document mode? Also what means each option and what logic is there to implement, f.e. first enterprise mode
then document mode, then in document mode first IE8 or IE10 ...?

Another question:
I do not have a local xml, when we look for xml, it points to \\domain\netlogon\ienterprisemode.xml
When I check Get-ItemProperty -Path "HKU:$using:SIDOfUser\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\EnterpriseMode").currentversion I do see a version. Where is this version then? Does that make sense?

Please advise.

If I turn on compatibility mode manually in IE11 it correctly detects the existence of a DOCTYPE tag in the html and either uses IE7 or IE5 document mode. It is happily using IE7 mode as we do have a DOCTYPE tag on our internal webserver.
It I use an Enterprise Mode site list to choose IE7 Enterprise mode or IE7 Document Mode, it always uses IE5 document mode, regardless of the DOCTYPE tag.  While we transition, the default for our internal sites need to
be in IE7 mode, but IE5 is breaking our sites.

I can't simply right click and show disabled devices to re-enable it. I know this trick and it's not helping me. No devices are showing up either way.

I use my Win Vista laptop at home and the office.

I use wifi at home and wired lan at the office. My laptop does have any settings in the TCP/IP properties. Everything is at default.

Every time I I try to use it at the office I have to disable and reenable the Lan connection from Manage networks, otherwise I do not get Net connectivity (except local lan).

No problem at home.

Since everything is default it picks up my IP from DHCP and gets other settings same way.

Why do I have to Disable and Enable the Lan connection before it starts accessing the Net.
 

A:Enable /disable Lan connection

If you put the laptop to Sleep or Hibernation before disconnecting the cable that may the cause. Try disconnecting the cable first.

The adapter/computer may not be "signing off" the network properly. Make sure you have the latest ethernet driver.

If the laptop is not rebooted from one day to the next, and
the work router or server is reset while the laptop is away, and
the lease time is long enough for the computer to think it still deserves the "old" IP, then that is a problem. Ask the network administrator to shorten the lease time, or shut down when you transport the machine, or live with your work around.

I hope I am not duplicating something here. . . . I did look - Honest!

I ran into an interesting problem and found an easy fix.

First: I wanted to ENABLE AHCI because (supposedly) it improves HDD performance. (It also enables a host of other interesting features.)

I discovered the trick of setting the START paramater in the registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci
from "3" to "0" - and then making the switch in the BIOS.

I tried to switch back, and simply resetting this start value to "3" doesn't work.

The issue here is that there are actually TWO keys that control the IDE/AHCI interface choice:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\pciide
When the system is in IDE interface mode, the respective start values are:msahci's START value is "3"
pciide's START value is "0"
When the system is in AHCI interface mode, the respective start values are:msahci's START value is "0"
pciide's START value is "3"
It is entirely possible that setting the START value to zero in the key representing the interface type you wish to use, may cause the corresponding key in the other interface type to automagically switch to "3". I do not know this, nor have I tested it.

What works for me is setting both START values to the values that correspond to the interface I wish to use.

It should be trivially... Read more

A:Enable and/or Disable AHCI

Hi jharris. Welcome.

For me, the reasons to enable AHCI are Native Command Queuing and Hot Swapping, hot swapping being the most important to me.

As far as switching back and forth, I could imagine issues arising from that (including confusion as to what mode I was running in at a given time...).

But if I needed to do it as a utility to convert drives to vhd's, I would consider a dual boot, with the AHCI disabled boot just a simple OS with whatever utilities I needed to get the job done. Keeping it simple would mean a quick boot to desktop and a small partition.

Hello, I've got a 9 multimonitor system, 3X Nvidia GPU + 3X Usb UGA-165

I have disable the 8 of them, but now Win10 doesn't appear to me any of the disable monitor in "Display Settings",
I have re-enable the 5 of them using the Nvidia Control panel but I can't re-enable the Usb monitors cause they don't have control panel and Nvidia control panel doesn't control them.

The problem is that Windows "Display Settings" have remove the disable monitor, so is there any trick or registry setting that can change that?
As you can see there are missing monitors 6
, 7 and 8.

Thank you

Choose ?Run SpyBot-S&D?.2. In SpyBot Search & Destroy click the Mode menu and choose Advanced.3. A dialog box will display on the screen read it then click Yes.4. In the bottom left of the SpyBot-S&D window is 3 Options. Click Tools.5. Now you will be displaying the Tools options. Click Resident.6.1. If there is a Check in: Resident ?TeaTimer? (Protection of over-all system settings) active. Uncheck it.To Re-Enable TeaTimer Follow Steps 1-5 above then do the following6.2. If there is not a Check in: Resident ?TeaTimer? (Protection of over-all system settings) active. Check it.Grinler/Mods: Please Place this where it can be of use. Fix it up as needed as well.I made all the Screenshots I haven?t contacted Patrick to see if its all right to use screenshots of his program. ?SpyBot?, ?SpyBot-S&D?, and ?SpyBot - Search & Destroy? are all Copyright of Patrick M.

Hello, So my laptop has keyboard functionality to adjust brightness and etc with using F1...F12 keys. I actually like that. The problem is: when I play video games, I need to press those F1...F12 buttons quickly, but I need to press Fn key ALSO to use F1...F12 keys' normal functionality and it really annoys me. And YES, I KNOW THAT BIOS THING, but as I mentioned I like that functionality when not gaming so I don't want to restart everytime I exit/start my game. I have seen that some manufacturers' laptops have software support to disable/enable that feature temporarily without restarting and changing something in BIOS, but I haven't found anything like that on my HP LAPTOP, I AM REALLY TIRED OF THIS HP CRAP, MY LAPTOP HAS PROBLEMS IN EVERY STEP. if you can suggest something, thank you.
