Thanks, lehnerus, I've heard about some freeware alternatives but forgot to note the links.

I'll give your suggestion a try.

It's a known bug of Windows Explorer (that MS has no intention to fix) introduced in the greatly flawed Explorer in Vista an latter versions.
The workaround, other than throwing the whole Explorer away, is to install Classic Shell that contains a vast number of bugfixes and improvements to Explorer (as well as the start menu and IE).
The exact setting that corrects this is in this screen:

Thanks, Alejandro, I might give Classic Shell a try.

Lehnerus, I have tried out FreeCommander XE. I haven't gotten used to it yet but will see how it goes.

You should read through the docs, if you have time.

Apart from twin pane and tabbed GUI, FreeCommander has a couple of nice tools:
  • md5 creation and validation
  • Mass Rename Tool
  • Compare files and folders

But about the time I go to click on one of the subfolders, the whole list moves down again and you have to scroll back down to...

Windows Explorer right pane does not match left folder
Hello, I just noticed Win Explorer does not refresh the right pane as I navigate up/down a list of folders via arrow keys in the left pane. It used to make rapid visual read of folder contents possible. Can that feature be switched back on? I've seen this reported elsewhere few years ago but...

Windows Explorer left-pane not showing changes to folder names
This one is getting really annoying. I have noticed that sometimes when using Windows Explorer, if I rename a folder, the right hand pane shows the correct (new) folder name, but the left hand pane still displays the old folder name. As a matter of fact, even if I right click on the folder...
