  1. Windows installed 1903 version, but no ribbon in file explorer


    Hi there,
    Hoping some one can help me out here - We have installed the latest version of Windows 10 pro 1903, but when I open my file explorer I don't have the Ribbon that usually has been there.
    If you look at the screen shot I took, there is no down arrow for the ribbon cant pres ctrl+F1 none of that works as the ribbon is not on file explorer at all.
    How can I get it back - It was there before the install of the new Windows update.
    Your help is highly appreciated.

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    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.

  4. Windows installed 1903 version, but no ribbon in file explorer

    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.
