If your website shows the compatibility button when you browse it in IE8 (Internet Explorer 8) then this is how to remove the button.

Simply add the below line to the <head></head> section of your website:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" />

An example of this is place would be:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" />

This must be the first meta tag in your code, otherwise it doesn’t work.
