In IE 11 different html field selected

I noticed that in IE 11 the selection of fields (dropdowns) has a different appearance (and other form fields also look different). It looks flat on IE 11, while it doesn't in other browsers (even lower IE browsers).

Is this a result of the Window Metro interface only available in Windows 8? If so, why am I experiencing this on Windows 7?

Is there a way to force form fields to use older ui? I have used <meta http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="IE=9" >

but it doesn't work.

Please refer to this link for a live sample. Use IE 11 please.

Yes, this is the way select

IE11 creates it. It may or may not be directly related to Metro UI, but it doesn't matter.

Setting an older compatibility mode does not affect the appearance of items. This will allow you to miss out on functionality added in IE11 that was missing in older versions. It's not a bad idea to use anything other than the latest compatibility mode unless there is a very good reason to do so (for example, your web application is out of date and doesn't work in the latest version).

You can use CSS to style the class alias select

(and ::-ms-expand

for the arrow styles that extend the menu)
