    Problems with scrolling and Windows Explorer


    Hello. Recently I have run into a problem with a few folders in my computer. I have my files organized by type and when I try to scroll through the file types, the folder will freeze necessitating a restarting of Windows Explorer on the Task Manager. This problem doesn't happen when I use the slide bar on the bottom of the folder. Just when I use my trackball or mouse scroll. If I set the view without grouping, I can access the files just fine, but I don't have enough files to necessitate scrolling. Oddly, when I set it back to grouping from the view not grouping, I don't have the problem until I go up level and come back to the grouped file type view. Does anyone know a way to keep Windows Explorer from crashing when I scroll through my files on grouped file type view on a folder? Thanks for the help.

    Windows 10 (latest update), i7, 16GB RAM, Dell XPS

    :)

  3. Problem in all Windows Explorer instances. Focus jumps to top

    Hi Ravinath

    The problem as shown in the video (the original problem in this thread) occurs, as I noted, in all File Explorer (Windows Explorer) instances.

    Where the number of files exceeds the display size of the window and a scroll bar is invoked, the scroll bar jumps back to the top after being scrolled down

    Where the number of files can be displayed in the window without invoking scroll bar, operations such as Rename are aborted if they take too long (that is before as I assume the window refreshes)

    I will try the command you suggest but I am backing all my files up first.

  4. Problems with scrolling and Windows Explorer

    Hi CuriuosD

    Did this start recently?

    I might check video drivers and mouse / trackball drivers? (Update as appropriate). If the problem is new and these drivers were recently updated by Windows rollback to an older version and test.

    If you use a different mouse, hoping you have one, does the problem persist?
