Internet Explorer 11 Changes OWA Interface

Introduction

How to get IE 11 to use the standard interface in Outlook Web App; by default, it uses the low-vision interface, and you can't change this behavior in the Accessibility settings.

Instructions

Instructions: 
  1. In IE 11, go to the Tools menu. If you don't see the menu bar, press F10.
  2. Select Compatibility View Settings.
  3. In Add this website, enter exchange.amherst.edu, then press the Add button.
  4. Press the Close button.
  5. Now, close and reopen IE 11, and log in to OWA. You will now see the normal interface. 

You only have to apply this fix once; IE 11 will remember this setting.
