  1. Select Bar jumps to the top of everything


    I have a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 Series, where I have encountered a seriously annoying problem. Whenever I try to select something mainly in File Explorer, but happens anywhere there is a choice, it even happens in the Start Menu, the "select" bar the blue bar "jumps" to the top of the page, and selects the first option. So I can't even open a folder or a file, without opening another one. This PC has been about on the shelf with no use for about a year. When I opened it again after a year, I saw that the updates, wont install, I used the troubleshoot, and it said that the Update Installer and been corrupted, and couldn't fix the problem. I reinstalled Windows 10 on the PC, using the "Windows 10 Update Assistant", this did fix the problem, but temporarily, and the problems would reappear, and I would have to reuse the "Windows 10 Update Assistant". My in-built keyboard doesn't work and I use an external keyboard to function. Also, with all these I had a lot of choice and none of them worked:


    1. Troubleshoot - I used almost all the troubleshooting option the "Troubleshoot" bar had to offer, yet none of them worked

    2. Try to fix device drivers - Yes, I tried to remove, and update all the drivers, but to no effect.

    3. System Restore - I used System Restore to go back to the earliest version I could go to, but it had no effect

    4. Try to "fix" the keyboard - I blowed air into the up arrow keyboard, to try and blow away dust that might have accumulated, but still didn't work

    5. Factory Reset the PC - This was an option, I wish I could undo. As a possible solution, I completely reset the PC back to factory default, wiping the memory completely, using the option which stated 'do this if you want to recycle or give away the PC'. When it completed, The screen said, "We have reset your PC, but we couldn't delete all your items". I knew the problem won't go. When I started the PC, after the Reset, it asked me for the location. I tried to select India where I live, but it would instantly scroll up and select the first option "Afghanistan". Now I knew I was screwed, I tried everything, but to no avail. Finally I turned on a backup computer, where I am writing this question.


    Please inform me if I can get rid of this really annoying bug or glitch.

    :)

    Scroll bar jumping to top

    I'm having an issue regarding the scroll bar automatically jumping to the top of the folder I'm in.

    When I right click and set a desktop background, for example, the scroll bar jumps to the top of the folder. It won't stay put. Meaning I have to scroll all the way back down each time.

    I'm sure it's a simple fix, and I'm just missing something?

    Thanks

    Select Bar jumps to the top of everything

    Jump/Scroll to Top or Bottom?

    If it's in an app then that's up to the developer to implement Jumps Lists. Jump Lists show up where need after a certain amount of content or apps are available within the OS.
