Use Google Maps on Internet Explorer

If you use Internet Explorer to view Google Maps, you might have some display problems. Internet Explorer has Compatibility View, a feature that affects how Maps may be displayed. To fix this, you can turn off Compatibility View.

Turn off Compatibility view

  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. In the top right, click Tools Tools. (If you don't see the icon, press the F10 key to see it.)
  3. Click Compatibility View Settings.
  4. Under “Websites you’ve added to Compatibility View," select google.com.
  5. Click Remove.


If you don't see "google.com" listed, or if you still see a warning regarding compatibility view after following the steps above, make sure that your computer has the latest Windows updates. See Microsoft's instructions.

You might also need to update to the latest version of Internet Explorer.
