1. In Internet Explorer, go to the Blackboard website.
2. Press and release the ALT key on your keyboard to display the "Tools" menu at the very top of the browser. Click "Tools > Compatibility View Settings":
3. Make sure the Blackboard site is not in the list of sites you've added to Compatibility View (if it is, remove it). Make sure "Display all websites in Compatibility View" not checked. Also, make sure the "Display intranet sites in Compatibility View" option is not checked:
4. Click Close. Then click the "refresh" icon at the top of Internet Explorer (or press F5 on your keyboard to refresh)
That's it. Compatibility View has been turned off and the Blackboard site should now render properly.
