Drawing Order - Symbol Placement

I'm Kurt, I'm new to Arc and my background is QGIS. 

I am regularly working with multiple layers that run off the screen. I want to compress the view of my layers without giving up the symbol type. Wondering if there is a way to move the symbol preview to the right or left of the layer? Picture attached shows what I'm after. 

Kind regards,

Hi Kurt,

Unfortunately it doesn't look like this is currently possible, but I think that's a great idea and I strongly recommend that you post it on the ArcGIS Ideas page: 

There are a few existing ideas to enhance the interactivity of the Table of Contents, but I think your idea deserves its own post as well.

Advanced TOC Visual Interface 

Manage layer symbology directly in TOC
