  1. File Explorer Buttons/Options are Missing


    When I open File Explorer, I recently noticed that there are buttons like "File" "Home" "Share" "View" missing, and generally the entire tab missing This is how it's supposed to look like: https://prnt.sc/smjvcm This is how it looks on my PC: https://prnt.sc/smjuc0 I tried restarting the file explorer by going to the task manager and then restarting the process, after that, I tried resetting file explorer to its default settings and everything. But that didn't help either. I'm very confused about why it's not showing up and I need advice that will hopefully solve my problem. Thanks for reading and have a great day :

    :)
