    The Windows 11 File Explorer has no ribbon and worse context menus.

    Open Regedit

    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions

    Create a registry key called Blocked if it doesn’t exist and navigate to it

    Right click in the right window pane and select New String->Value

    Rename your value to {e2bf9676-5f8f-435c-97eb-11607a5bedf7}

    Close Regedit and restart your PC.
