    windows 10 file explorer issue

    I have one small issue.

    I was using win 7 and got upgraded to win 10 and everything was working fine.

    I have been using win 10 since August or September 2015.

    recently the location of the file explorer changed from the left side to the right side and I am not able to bring it back to the left side.

    more over, ribbons at the top of the page moved also to the other side. screenshot is attached for more clarification.

    please help me to restore the location of the file explorer back to the left side along with the ribbons

    Click image for larger version.

    win 10

    your suggestion didn't work. your suggestion is related to the screen settings and not to the file explorer (navigation pane)

    What you need to do is RESET your folder to default. Read this link, even thou its for Windows 8 it still works for Windows 10, read option #2
