How to display Tabs in a Multiple row with Internet Explorer 9

Microsoft launched the Internet Explorer 9 Release Candidate with many new features and a few design changes. For instance, in this release, the tabs and the address bar are in the same row.

This might be a good design for some users, but for those who normally have many (read more than 15) tabs open at a time, it makes the row heavily cluttered. Not to mention anything about reducing the visibility of the tabs.

This irritation (cant be called a problem) has a very simple fix.

Open Internet Explorer 9

Right click on an empty spot in the bar.

Choose Show tabs on a separate row.

Once the deed is done, your tabs now descend below the address bar thus getting an ample amount of space. This option is available only in IE9 RC and not the beta version.
