    Hey Shawn,

    I upvoted the issue.

    Jim D had this workaround and it works when Sets is OFF. I am not sure about with Sets ON. I had to read the four choices several times. They were not very intuitive.

    Found a workaround for this: there is a group policy that overrides the naughty behavior and shows the ribbon every time you open Explorer: Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\File Explorer- Start File Explorer with ribbon minimized, set to Enabled, choose "Display the ribbon..."

    Again I say read the choices very carefully. I went with the second choice and File Explore ribbon is always shown now.

    Hey Shawn,

    They fixed it in the build 17650 and sent me notices that it had been fixed and it is listed:

    General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC


    • We fixed an issue where File Explorer would always open with the ribbon minimized, rather than remembering how you’d left it.
    • We fixed an issue where elements on
