Although the panes are by default in the footer, most tabbed windows can be moved around and docked to your liking. That applies to the Default (Ribbon) or Default (Menu) styles.
Use the View - Footer commands from the ribbon to control the visibility of individual panes.
Upon first use, the footer panes are undocked by default. You can dock them to a single panel with a simple drag & drop. Just drag a pane into another one, then drop the it in the center of the directional control.
Here, we drop the Details pane to make it tabbed with the Description pane.
Dock a footer pane into another
You can use the same directional control to dock the footer panes into the main window.
Here is a personalized setup of the footer panes.
