    Missing Explorer Ribbon.


    I have no explorer ribbon and not sure what happened to it. Been rather busy lately with other things, so maybe it was never there on install and didn't take notice... not sure. I just know it's not there now. Any help greatly appreciated.

    File Explorer Ribbon or Tool Bar

    Hello,

    We understand that you want to keep the ribbon open in File Explorer.

    There are ways on how to achieve this. Here are some of it. Kindly check the methods below:

    Hide or show the Ribbon using a Registry tweak

    • Open Registry Editor.
    • Go to the following key:

      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer

      If this key does not exist, just create it.
    • Create or modify the 32-bit DWORD value named ExplorerRibbonStartsMinimized. explorerribbonstartsminimized

      Note: Even if you are running 64-bit Windows you must still create a 32-bit DWORD value.
      • To start Explorer with the Ribbon always minimized, set the ExplorerRibbonStartsMinimized value data to 3.
      • To start Explorer with the Ribbon always maximized, set it to 4. Delete the ExplorerRibbonStartsMinimized parameter to restore the default behavior.
      • Delete the ExplorerRibbonStartsMinimized parameter to restore the default behavior.

    Using a Group Policy tweak, you can force Explorer to always start with the Ribbon minimized.

    • Press Win + R keys together on your keyboard.
    • The Run box will appear. Type the following in the Run box and then press Enter:
      • gpedit.msc
    • In the left pane of Group Policy Editor, navigate to the following path:
      • User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Windows Components \ File Explorer
    • Now locate the setting called Start File Explorer with Ribbon minimized in the right pane and double click it. The policy configuration window will open.
    • Set the option to the "Enabled" state and pick the option below it which is suitable for you.

    Update us with the result so we can further assist you.
