    Nope, Salem wanted information about your IDE (integrated development environment) not about your compiler or operating system.

    Edit: "DEV C++" is an IDE; but, there are three or more IDEs that had that in the name.

    The "X86_64-mingw32" implies you are using an Mingw64 GCC on an 64 bit version of windows. It says nothing about which IDE you are using!

    See this. Now just translate that to C...

    Judging by the kind of response I am electing by my query, I assume that you people don't know.

    When the poster refuses or is unable to post information needed to answer the question the question can not be answered except by random guesses on possible answers!

    I am still hoping to have a much valued awnser to my query from one of you. I am doing my best to awnser appropriately. Could we please restrict ourselves to the issue at hand rather than to embark on metacommunication?

    Sorry for my belated response. I had not seen this text earlier.

    It is DvC ++ (C) Bloodshed software

    Is this the information I should have supplied?

    Wow, running an 16 year old IDE. I am surprised it works with 64 bit version of MinGW.

    I still have no idea what ribbon you wish to hide; maybe it is the title bar of an CMD.exe window.

    Or maybe you are writing a GUI program that defaults to having a ribbon bar or a title bar.

    I can not help you with that. But, I did find out there is a fourth Dev C++ based IDE I never knew about.

    "Wow, running an 16 year old IDE. I am surprised it works with 64 bit version of MinGW."

    Thank you for your comment. I am not so young myself (84) and I am not a programmer drenched in C programming experience. I am a retired, well educated, management consultant. I am bright enough to create the programs I want for myself though. So I am slightly daunted when I am cofronted by an avalanche of comment, and an occasional rude remark on this site. I think that the more you know, the more you should behave like a gentleman.

    I downloaded the IDE you mention and it compiles and runs my code nicely. I do get warnings for which my knowledge is insufficient. But the program runs okay. I will make another attempt to explain what my query was about. If you were to decide to resond to my post (this very post you are looking at now) you would get a frame titled "Quick reply"; the bar across with those words, I am referring to as the ribbon. Well that ribbon I want to get rid of in my application. And I was asking if someone could tell me how to do that, using the appropriate coding.

    Are you building and running an command line program or an GUI program?

    Edit: I think I am seeing your problem; but, I need to install an 32 bit compiler to verify it. I am on Windows 7 32 bit where I installed "Embarcadero Dev-C++" and I see something that might be your problem when I tried to create a Windows GUI project AKA "Windows Application" in Dev C++.

    Edit2: The TDM Compiler that was part of "Embarcadero Dev-C++" does not include enough of an 32 bit mingw GCC compiler to build complex C/C++ programs like GUI ones. Edit3: It was just an 64 bit compiler that can build very simple 32 bit code that does not need libraries.

    I am running a GUI program.

    Run this and look at the top of the frame

    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    
    
    int main(void)
    {
    		system("@cls||clear");
       		SetConsoleTitle("This is the ribbon I want te get rid of");
    }

    PLEASE EXPLAIN! Why did you post an console program?

    I wrote a simple console program for my explanation because a (bigger) console program is the source of my query

    It is 01:00 AM in Holland now and I am knocking off to bed.
