Windows 7: favorites bar/tabs location - ???

favorites bar/tabs location - ???

I upgraded to IE 10 for Visual Studio 2013 and have found that the Tabs bar is now above the Favorites. I found how to move the Tabs away from the side of the Address bar but I do not see any way to move it below the Favorites. Some forum searching and googling has yielded nothing so far. I'm afraid I know the answer, which is likely no, but I wanted to ask here. Always able to find a good answer, whether it's what I want to hear or not from this place.

I've already clicked on favorites a couple of times while trying to switch to a different tab.

I'm not sure what version you updated from but ie9 is the exact same way as ie10,
So I'm thinking ie8 ?
I believe there's a way to move the Favorites listing to the right side like ie8 but that's about as far as I can think of,
Internet Explorer Favorites Center - Pin and Unpin to Left Side
The Favorites bar can be combined with the Command bar but that again is as good as that gets,
Internet Explorer Command Bar - Move to Left or Right

Indeed Show tabs on a separate row is the only option. I have not seen any "tweak" tools that will accomplish this as well. MS has decided they know best (and yes, that was true of IE9 as well). A Guy

Setting the location of tabs in IE 9 and later
I'm still using IE 8 and one of the reasons is that I haven't found a way to move the tabs in IE 9 and later so that they are below all the other toolbars and menu bars. They're always above everything else. Does anyone know how to move them?
