The Best Way to Get Rid of Windows 8 Explorer Ribbon

NOTE: Windows 8 is under development so we recommend you to test the new features instead of removing or disabling them. If you still want to get rid of new Ribbon UI, following method will help you.
Yesterday we posted a very easy to use trick to temporarily disable Ribbon UI in Windows 8 Explorer. We used the built-in Full Screen mode to disable Windows 8 Explorer ribbon:
How to Disable New Ribbon UI and Get Old Toolbar Back in Windows 8 Explorer?
This method proves that the old Windows Vista or 7 style command bar is still present in Windows 8 Explorer and the new ribbon is simply hiding it.
And today our friend "Lee Whittington" shared another simple method to completely remove ribbon from Windows 8 Explorer. This method involves renaming a system file present in Windows 8 which is responsible of showing ribbon in Windows 8 Explorer.
This method will permanently remove ribbon from Windows Explorer in Windows 8 and you'll get Windows Vista and 7 style Explorer as shown in following screenshot:
So without wasting time lets start the tutorial:
1. Open Windows Explorer and go to C:\Windows\System32 folder. Here we are assuming that Windows 8 is installed in C: drive in your computer. If you installed Windows 8 in any other partition, replace C: drive with the correct drive letter.
2. Now look for a file UIRibbon.dll.
3. Now you'll need to take ownership of this DLL file. You can use any of following 2 methods to take ownership of UIRibbon.dll file:
4. Once you take ownership, rename UIRibbon.dll file to any other name such as UIRibbon_bak.dll or UIRibbon.old or any other name.
5. That's it. Restart your system and you'll no longer see ribbon in Windows 8 Explorer.
