Windows 8.1, Internet Explorer 11, SharePoint, DataSheet View

I upgraded to Windows 8.1 (64-bit) and I love it, even with some of the minor flaws already mentioned in other blog entries, but I started getting the dreaded issue with not being able to view a SharePoint 2010 list in DataSheet view. Even worse is that I know how to fix it, or at least I thought I did…

The issue didn’t start right after upgrading to Win 8.1, but a few days after. Now, after repairing my previous fix,, I still had the issue. However, I accidentally added the SharePoint development site to the compatibility view list, and things started working again. It turns out that there is a check box in the Compatibility View Settings dialog box, Display intranet sites in Compability View, that I must have cleared prior to the error happening. Hmm, only wasted a good day on this…

  1. Thanks for posting this! That worked for me as well and saved me at least a few hours of forehead-to-desk time.
