openening folders

this is the first time i am ever posting a thread anywhere.
when i have a window open and looking at folders / libraries, i like to see the folder on the left and the subfolders / files on the right.
In windows 7, every time i go to open a folder, the folder dropps to the bottom of the scroll list.
can someone help me try to keep the scroll from dropping to the bottom?

Can you provide some screenshots of your problem? I don't think I understand what it is you're having trouble with.

Use Alt + Printscreen to take a screenshot of the active window. Paste it in Paint and Save. Once you've got your screenshots, come back and reply to this thread, make sure you're in the advanced menu and use the manage attachment button under the text box to add your screenshots.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I know what Windowsproblem is talking about, but unsure how to fix it myself...when you have the explorer window open with the file list to the left and you expand a folder to display an indented list of folders inside the newly expanded folder this folder that was just expanded jumps to the bottom of the left pane. I was going to try and attach screenshots but it appears now my system is opening the folder and adjusting the expanded folder to fit as many of the folders inside it as possible, perhaps the updates that just came out fixed the problem that was causing this?

Consolidate Shortcut Folders/File Folders in Open Dialogue
I was wondering if there's a way to sort file folders and shortcut folders so they are listed together, as in previous OS versions. I find it frustrating that 7 has forced the shortcuts to be split up into their own category rather than their file properties. I prefer to sort my folders by type,...
