  1. File Explorer crashes when scrolling.


    When i right click any folder on the sidebar e.g. Quick Access folders and scroll down the explorer just crashes. When i right click on a quick access folder it crashes when i get to "unpin from quick access". When i right click a folder under "this pc", it crashes when i scroll down to "give access to" sorry if i wrote it wrong, my pc is not in english.. Is this a bug? Or is something on my pc corrupted? Thanks.

    :)

    File Explorer crashes when scrolling with "Content" view

    I am finding that File Explorer is crashing after a search is complete and try to scroll through the list (200-500+) if the view is left in the default "Content" view. But, if the "Details" view is selected, can scroll the entire list no problem. Must
    be something with the "Content" view grid, with it's nested info, that it can't keep up with the refresh or something???

    File Explorer crashes when scrolling.

    Scroll bar keeps resetting in Windows File Explorer.

    For some reason, when I'm browsing a long list of files, if I stop moving my scroll wheel for a few seconds, the scroll bar in the file explorer jumps back up to the very top. Which is annoying when I'm browsing a folder that has hundreds of files in it.
    This only happens in the file explorer. Any suggestions?
