    What?

    Some people like to know where they are, when they are traversing the directory structure.
    The Up button is always in the same place.

    That's also why I would prefer to customize the Ribbon to how I use it, like in Internet Explorer, I can unlock the toolbars and shift them around. Why not do that with the Ribbon's bars?

    If it would help, I'll see if I can draw what I'm talking about.
