Noticed a IE browser update from IE 8 to IE 10..  now the search bar no longer appearing to right of url address bar.. I could not get it back.  The only solution I could come up with was to uninstall IE 10 and go back to IE 8.  Now the search bar is back where I am used to.. 

I know you guys like to freshen up the browsers, but I will not tolerate being prevented from setting up the address bar where I want it.   Please publish clear instructions on how to restore the search bar onto the same line and to the right of the address bar.. otherwise I will continue to use IE 8 until its no longer supported and switch to another NON MICROSOFT browser.  

I've always been an IE browser user up to this point.  Not because its better, but its just what I've gotten used to over the years..  When you shake up the functions (like preventing placement of the search bar to the right of the address bar)  it bothers me... to the point of not using your product.

Hopefully there are others like me in sufficient numbers to get your attention..  can you please address this issue and restore the ability to place the search bar to the right of the address bar.. please..  

Thank you
