Is it possible to change the layout of IE9 in order to have the address bar be longer or on a different row than the page tabs?


Yes, right click the Internet Explorer frame and click the Show tabs on a separate row option.

  • I suppose the other option, to lengthen the address bar is not possible, right? – Francisc Mar 15 '11 at 14:00

    You can simply drag-and-drop the edge of the address bar to lengthen/shorten it. (Only if it's on the same row as the tabs, of course.) @Francisc – oKtosiTe Mar 15 '11 at 14:02

    @Francisc: You can drag the handle between the address bar in tabs, if you click the option in the above picture the address bar will take more width. I leave them on the same row as I like the new height, I even try not to use a bookmarks bar... – Tamara Wijsman Mar 15 '11 at 14:02

    Hm, I didn't think it would be that easy. Thank you both. – Francisc Mar 15 '11 at 14:03

Found it: Right click on the bar and check Show tabs on separate row.

    I think you deserved at least my upvote, seeing you answered 1 minute after Tom, all within 5 minutes from the question being asked... – allanrockwell Jun 26 '11 at 2:13
  • Haha, I probably didn't refresh the page and only saw his answer after posting mine. It was a long time ago, so I don't remember exactly, but I wouldn't have answered if I had seen his. :) – Francisc Jun 26 '11 at 11:05
