How Do I Move The Tab Headers back below the Favorites Bar Where They Belong? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Posted in Windows 7 forum -- told to post it here.

    Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with all patches
    IE11 with all patches

    I find it extremely confusing to have the tab headers above the menu bar.  Is there anyway to move them back below the favorites bar where they appear to be attached to the tabs?

  • I have filed it as a design bug.  Unfortunately, Microsoft tends to ignore those as it would have to admit it was wrong about something.  It will be closed as "by design" even though the design is wrong.

    Still looking for a third party tool that will let me fix this.

    Try the Quero toolbar.  Even if it doesn't do what you want you can get the source and modify it for your own needs.

    I already have the Quero toolbar installed to get back the separate search box.  I don't see any option for moving the tabs.

    I think I'll pass on that.

  • Hi,

    As far as I know, the tab can be set under the address bar, but cannot below the toolbar or favorites bar. It is by design. If you have any feedback about this, you can submit it to https://connect.microsoft.com/IE, Microsoft IE development team will take this into account.
