If you have recently shifted to Windows 10 from an older version of Windows like XP or 7, then you will notice that Windows 10 doesn’t include menu bar. It doesn’t show that but that doesn’t mean that it lacks that feature. Of course, you can enable menu bar in Windows 10 and that’s why I am here with this simple guide to do that. You can tweak file Explorer settings in Windows 10 to bring the menu bar back to life. And trust me to do this, you don’t need any third party tool.
The menu bar is one of the oldest components on the user interface of Microsoft Windows. I don’t know why they have hidden it in Windows 10, but you can bring that back. And here I will list simple steps for you to easily understand what it really takes to bring menu bar back to windows 10.
How to Enable Menu Bar in Windows 10?
Enabling menu bar in Windows 10 is not that difficult. Just have to take some Explorer setting from the Control Panel to bring back menu bar.
Open Control Panel and access File Explorer Options. Next, go to the view tab and then find the option “Always show menus”. After that, check it and the menu bar will appear and you can see menus like File, Edit, View, Tool, etc.
Above you can see the picture of the menu bar that I have enabled on my computer. And you can also enable it in on your PC in hardly 5 to 6 seconds. Apart from using Control Panel, you can also use the File Explorer’s Ribbon’s view tab. In the view tab, there is an “Options” button which will open the same window as the File Explorer Options opens.
I never get to use Windows 7 or Windows Vista. I switch to Windows 10 directly from Windows XP. And I was feeling very abandoned when I saw that there is no menu bar in Windows 10. But with the help of some forums, I was able to enable menu bar in Windows 10. Then I thought that it’s worth sharing and that is why I come up with this little guide.
