IE11 looks like IE8 (no tabs)

I have a user with windows 7 SP1 pro. When she opens IE it has no options for tabs. It will come up to the welcome to IE 11 screen but IE looks like IE8. When I go to about the about window closes before I can look at the Version number. I could not find anything on google. Anyone seen this before?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I understand your client wants to use tabs.

Do the reverse of what poud suggested the following in

"Right click on your title bar or menu bar
Enable "Show tabs on a separate row"
Go to Tools>Internet Options>Tabs
Deselect all the Tabbed Browsing options
Move down to the section: "When a new tab is opened, open:"
In the drop down menu select "Your first home page"
Click "OK" and then "Apply" "

I do see the tab options but no matter what I change nothing happens. It is very strange.
