    bad scroll on folder tree pane (in windows explorer)

    When I open a folder using the tree in the left pane the position of the selected folder change.
    It's like the layout of the tree pane is not working fine.
    Maybe they autoscroll in order to display all the child's folders but I don't like this.
    When the folder i want to open is in the middle of the pane (vertically)
    it moves often to the bottom and i can't even see the child's folder, and some time it move the opened folder to the top of the pane

    I just would like to have the thing working as it's in XP. When we open a folder, this one don't move and the children appears under this one.

    Do you understand the issue?

    Yes, this is one of those "WTF were they thinking" mistakes in the W7 file explorer

    I can't understand why in the world they would scroll the left pane DOWN to hide exactly the very thing you are trying to look at :/ It should scroll up to either the top (if the child folder list is long) or up just far enough to show the entire child folder list.

    I do not know of any way to fix it, it's a built in behavior of explorer which would have to be fixed by MS themselves...

    Workaround - Breadcrumb Address Bar

    This annoys the h*** out of me too.

    I now use a combination of the "Naviagtion" pane and the "Breadcrumb" address bar (to thwart this "incompetent boobery").

    I also hate the way that you can't set the "Open" & "Save" dialogue window sizes (to some size of your own choice) and have Windows remember it.
