Windows 7: Windows Explorer Quirks

Windows Explorer Quirks

Gripe #1:
Often times when I click on a folder in the left hand pane of Windows Explorer, instead of rising to the top of the pane and expanding below, the folder I clicked on will go to the bottom and I have to scroll down to see the expanded folders. Sometimes it expands properly and before you have a chance to click on a subfolder, it auromagically all moves down and out of sight right before your eyes. This was a known problem in the RC version which I thought surely would be fixed,
Gripe #2:
I prefer folders with pictures in them to be displayed in detail view. So I switch to detail view, go to folder and search options, the view tab, and "Apply to Folders" which states that it will apply those changes to all folders of this type. However, next time I go to a picture folder, it opens in thumbnail view again.
I am really trying my best to try and get used to Windows 7, but it is things like this that keeps my dual boot machine in XP most of the time.
