    File Explorer Ribbons with Home Tabs greyed out


    For most of the afternoon today I have searched through Google and here to see if I can get the File Explorer Ribbons with Home Tabs fix. So far no luck to get this fix. I am not sure what is exactly the problem with this even I tried to right-click on desktop to get a new folder and nothing in the box. Any idea how to get this fix.

    Thank you,

    John

    Still doesn't work after restore File Explorer to Defaults. Not sure what else next with this to fix the problem.

    The only way that I can think of is to have fresh install of Windows but don't like to see that I will lose some of the programs on my desktop. I will not do till someone think that if that is necessary to do have fresh install of Windows or not.

    There are two more steps to try before considering a clean install. The first is to open an elevated command prompt and run...

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Use DISM to Repair Windows 10 Image


    The next is to do an in-place repair install. This will keep all your files and installed apps.

    Want to say thank you to Bree and I used the top with " Use DISM to Repair Windows 10 Image. "

    It's working now.
