    folder with several files issue


    I recently upgrading both of my computers to windows 10 from windows 8.1 and I see this issue on both machines.

    when I'm in a folder with lots of files ( example music folder with 400 songs) and I scroll down through the folder looking at the files, without me doing anything the folder will automatically go back to the top of the folder to the beginning of the files. Even if I only scroll down a little bit after about 5 seconds it will automatically shoot back to the top of the folder.

    Another issue I found today I only have about 5 seconds to rename a folder. any longer then that and it will deselect the folder in which I'm trying to rename.

    I have been searching for these issues in a lot of different places and have not found an answer yet. Any body see this?

    :)

  2. issue within a folder with several files

    I recently upgrading both of my computers to windows 10 from windows 8.1 and I see this issue on both machines.

    when I'm in a folder with lots of files ( example music folder with 400 songs) and I scroll down through the folder looking at the files, without me doing anything the folder will automatically go back to
    the top of the folder to the beginning of the files. Even if I only scroll down a little bit after about 5 seconds it will automatically shoot back to the top of the folder.

    Another issue I found today I only have about 5 seconds to rename a folder. any longer then that and it will deselect the folder in which I'm trying to rename.

  3. issue within a folder with several files

    Hello Travis,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    To diagnose the issue, I would suggest you to try the following methods and check if the issue persists.

    Method 1:

    Try to run a System File Checker (SFC) scan to check for any file corruption.
    SFC scan will scan for corrupt system files on the computer and repair them.

    • Press Windows key + X, click Command Prompt (Admin).
    • In the Command Prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

      sfc /scannow

    If the issue still exists, try the next method.

    Method 2:

    You may check the same issue with the new user account.

    Try these steps to create a new user account and check if it fixes the issue. Refer to the steps below to create a new User Account:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Choose Accounts and then select Other User Accounts towards the left.
    • Select Add an Account.
    • Enter a user name and hit Next.
    • Click on Finish.
    • Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    • Check if issue persists.

    Hope this information is helpful. Do let us know if you need any further assistance, we'll be glad to assist you.

    folder with several files issue

    Hi norrix420, I too recently upgraded to 10 a few days ago and also am having those same issues you are, I see no one has answered your concern yet. That is somewhat concerning. Hopefully posting here will get their attention. Have you resolved n your own yet?

  5. This honestly sounds like a bug. I experienced this on one of the 10586 insider builds, and it was later fixed. I'd say hang in there, or try updating Windows.
