Folder list scrolls up when I expand a folder

    General discussion

  • I've run into an issue both in Windows Explorer's folder list on the left and in the folder browser dialog.  When I double-click on a folder to expand it and show its children, the list scrolls up such that the folder I just expanded is at the bottom of the list with most of its children hidden.  So, as I drill down to find the folder I want, I double-click then scroll down, double-click then scroll down, etc.

    It'd be nice if it scrolled the opposite direction so that the folder I just expanded would end up at the TOP of the scroll pane so that the children of that folder are visible.

    A work-around I've noticed is to click on the little arrow to the left of the folder name.  That behaves like I want, but it's faster for me to double-click on a large mouse target than single-click on a small one which requires more time and mouse precision to hit.

    But that small annoyance is more than compensated for by the new taskbar, which is totally awesome. =)

  • Yeah, that really is annoying.

  • I have noticed that if you then press the left, then right arrow, you get it to pop back up to the top.

  • this seems to be a bug in the treeview control, not just the folder list... i've seen it somewhere else as well, although i can't remember exactly where... some dialog in Visual Studio, i think.

    VERY annoying behavior.

  • I hate this problem of scrolling back up of treeview when you double click to open a folder and I also hate that when you navigate on treeview you must hit enter to see the view of folder content updated...
