Our school's VLE has a few problems when running in IE8/IE9's Compatibility View. Mainly it causes difficulties with uploading files.

This problem is easily remedied by un-ticking the Display intranet sites in Compatibility View option from Internet Explorer's Compatibility View options.

Compatibility View options

However, I'm unable to find a way of doing this en masse. I can't find anything regarding this in GPO - would a registry hack or similar do the trick?

Thanks in advance,

I believe the group policy you want is User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Compatibility View\ intranetcompatabilitymode set to disabled
