    File Explorer keeps scrolling back to the top.


    Updated Win10 Pro to 1809 before file delete issues. Patch was applied last night.

    In file explorer, in folders with large number of files, window will refresh back up to the top (approx every 5 seconds).

    After searching, the Personalization>Colors>disabling "Automatically pick an accent color from my background" DOES not work.

    Also, disabling Slideshow to single background color/picture DOES not work also.

    I never had this issue prior to 1809 update. I had clean installed Windows a few weeks before update (without issues) and have not installed any new programs prior or since. Also, I noticed performance would be laggy the longer my PC is running. A reboot every couple hours restores performance.

    This issue is frustrating as editing files is nearly impossible if working on files at the end of the folder.

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

    :)

  2. file explorer scroll bar keep jumping to top


    Hi Shawn.

    Can you help with file explorer scroll bar that keep on jumping to the top. I actually knew it since few builds back. I thought it's already resolved. That was why, last week when I got an offer of free upgrade on my samsung ativ running win 8.1n didn't think much, just hit the button and upgraded to Win 10. Later I found my file list on the explorer keep jumping to the top just like the previous trial I have in other PC.
    Can you help me with that? (I already sent feed back to MS through Windows Feedback app)

    Thank in advance.

    Kevin

    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?

    Windows 10 File Explorer keeps scrolling to the top and hard to rename a file

    Since upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 I have 2 persistent problems with File Explorer:

    1. It keeps scrolling to the top. A few moments after I scroll down it brings me back to the top.

    2. When I try to rename a folder it exits the renaming process.
