Fix “The Standard View of your list is being displayed because your browser does not support running ActiveX controls.”

Problem:
Datasheet view in SharePoint 2010 did not work with a message “The Standard View of your list is being displayed because your browser does not support running ActiveX controls.” in IE11 browser!

The Standard View of your list is being displayed because your browser does not support running ActiveX controls

Solution:

  • Add SharePoint site to compatibility view settings in your IE-11 browser. Also, check the “Display intranet sites in Compatibility view” checkbox (My SharePoint site is under Intranet zone, BTW)
    add site to compatibility view
  • Download and install the Access database engine: https://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/details.aspx?id=13255
