    Tile and Ribbon ???


    In the Tutorial section, there is one as "How to Minimize the Windoes Exlporer "Ribbon"". Right after I installed W8 two days ago, I also downloaded "Windows 8 BluePoison" and by using this, I "unlock hidden features". From then on I no longer see the "Tiles". Windows Explorer is just like that of W7 and it has not "Ribbon".

    I am just curious to know how I can get that Tiles back and see "Ribbon" on Windows Explorer.

    Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer and
    modify the RPEnabled key to a “1” which will set it back to default.
