    Hello Luis,

    We provide a RadRibbonWindow to achieve this functionality since the WPF Window cannot be easily modified to achieve this. The RadRibbonWindow integrates the RadRibbonView into the window header in order to achieve the desired look. You can review the following article explaining its usage.

    You can change the Window for your applicaiton to telerik:RadRibbonWindow, in your XAML and in code behind:
    public partial class MainWindow : RadRibbonWindow
        static MainWindow()
            RadRibbonWindow.IsWindowsThemeEnabled = false;
        public MainWindow()

    Setting IsWindowsThemeEnabled = false will allow the styling for the chosen theme to be assigned.

    Set IsHitTestVisible ="True" to the RadRibbonWindow and merge in your App.xaml either as a single style or from a ResourceDictionary the following style after the other needed dictionaries for the chosen theme, where local is the namespace of your application:
    <Style TargetType="local:MainWindow" BasedOn="{StaticResource RadRibbonWindowStyle}" />

    Please refer to the mentioned article in our documentation for more detailed information about the usage of the RadRibbonWindow and do not hesitate to contact us further, if you have any more questions.
