07: How to Configure Browser Router to use IE Document Modes in Edge IE TAB

Note: The IE Tab function is only supported in Edge Chromium Edition, you must have Edge Chromium Edition installed for these rules to function properly.

Step 1. Create a new Browser Router collection, and add a new policy item to redirect the web site to IE in whichever mode you wish.

TIP: You can press F12 for Developer Tools while in IE then look under the Emulation tab to see which mode the page is loaded in.

Run GPUPDATE on the target machine, open Internet Explorer, go to the site that should be redirected to IE in Edge tab mode then wait 65 seconds or more, refresh page in IE to see if the policy is working, you should see your site open in a new tab in Edge Chromium and displayed in the required IE Document Mode.
