Move Tab Bar to Bottom, or Display Tabs as Thumbnails on the Side

SUMMARY: Move Opera 10's Tab Bar to the bottom of the browser if you find that more convenient, or display webpage thumbnails by moving it to the left or right side.

As with most other web browsers, Opera displays a Tab Bar near the top of the browser window.

However, some might prefer the Tab Bar to appear near the bottom of the browser. And if you have a wide monitor, you could instead change the Tab Bar to display thumbnails of each website on the left or right side of Opera, making it easier to choose which website to view.

Opera 10 with the Tab Bar on the left side of the browser window, displaying webpage thumbnails

2. When the pop-up menu appears, select "Tab Bar Placement".

3. Choose whether you want the Tab Bar placed at the top (default), bottom, or as thumbnails on the left or right side of the browser.
