Ribbon bar in File Explorer missing

Recommended Posts

I am very new of using this theme on my computer (day 2 in-fact!).

I have just realised that the File Explorer no longer displays the Ribbon Bar.

In addition, reverting to the Windows 10 theme does not change this.

Why has it vanished and how can it be reinstated?

You seem to have installed OldNewExplorer based on some of the files present in your screenshot, if you would like to keep using the ribbon while having ONE active you have to disable the option "use command bar instead of ribbon;" however doing so will remove the additional glass effect on the navigation bar. Hope this helps :D

So it is a catch 22 situation then?

I do have this OldNewExplorer installed. How do I get to this "Use command bar instead of ribbon" setting to change it?

OldNewExplorer comes with a small configuration program called OldNewExplorerCfg, so you basically just open that and clear the right checkbox. If I remember correctly, OldNewExplorer doesn't change anything by itself, so you must have either used the configuration program in the past or maybe installed some registry file that would change those settings.

The theme was installed remotely by the author using TeamViewer. However I have located the executable you refer to. At least I now know how to get the ribbon back if I want to.

Thank you.
