Internet Explorer compatibility mode

You can use Banner 8 using Microsoft Edge on your Michigan Tech fully managed device running Windows 10 (ex. computername.ad), without entering Internet Compatibility mode as this is already configured. This is the typical setup for most office desktops.

If you are using a minimally managed (ex. computername.sabu) or a personal device, you will need to take additional steps to use Banner 8 on Microsoft Edge.

  1. Open Microsoft Edge.
  2. Visit edge://settings/defaultBrowser or select the three dots in the upper right corner of Edge > Settings > Default browser.
  3. Select Add under Internet Explorer mode pages.
  4. Enter https://banweb.mtu.edu/banner8.
  5. Select Add.
  6. Repeat the process every 30 days.
