When running Internet Explorer from the the modern UI, I can't find out how to access tabs. I can create tabs using Ctrl + T, but I'm not sure how to switch between tabs, see what tabs I have open, etc.

How do I navigate between tabs when using the modern UI Internet Explorer?

You can use CTRL + Tab to navigate through tabs in a forward direction or use CTRL + Shift + Tab to navigate in a backwards direction.

There is also a top bar to allow you to add new tabs. You should be able to get the top bar by right clicking over it, or the equivalent touch gestures

Hover doesn't seem to work, but right click brings up a top bar with thumbnails of all the tabs . . . – ernie Nov 1 '12 at 20:12

You can either right click to bring up the tabs list, or use CTRL + TAB to cycle through the ones you have open.

On touch devices, you should be able to emulate right click with a tap.
