  1. File Explorer Green Ribbon of Death


    When I first upgraded to W10, File Explorer worked as it did in W7. Now when I open it I see a blank preview section and the forever expanding green ribbon in the ribbon bar. I tried checking Always show Icons, never thumbnails and the green ribbon finally finishes. But not being able to see picture thumbnails is a pain. I turned thumbnails on for the Pictures folder only and the never ending green ribbon is back. Possibly a related problem: with thumbnails off (or on) if I left click on a video file in the Videos volder, file explorer hangs and I have to end it with Task Manager.

    I have heard that by ending the dllhost.exe process/service, the green ribbon goes away, but so does W10 security and stability.

    Suggestions on how to fix are appreciated.

    Without a properworking File Explorer, W10 is not really a suitable OS.

    :)

    How to get back the ribbon menu in File Explorer, in Windows 10 and Windows 8.1

    If, after a while, you have changed your mind and you want the ribbon back on your
    File Explorer , run the Ribbon disabler executable once more. This time however, click or tap on the
    “Enable Ribbon Explorer” button.

    Log off and then see the default File Explorer brought back, just as Microsoft intended it to be, with the ribbon included.
