Windows 7: Folder navigation jumps to previously expanded folder

Folder navigation jumps to previously expanded folder

Hi,

I've got an annoying problem which is similar to [but not sure if its the same as] some other complaints about the navigation pane reported here (like this & this).

It seems to happen only when the navigation pane is open on file commands like "open..." and "save as...".

When the dialog opens and I left click a folder opening arrow on the left hand pane, the folder expands but then after half a second or so it jumps back to whatever folder was previously expanded. Both parts of the tree remain expanded but I have to scroll to get to the one I just expanded, which is very annoying.

Has anyone else come across this (sorry - tried a search but couldn't find it)?

Is there a way to change it?

Could you have a look at your Control Panel => Option Folders=> Navigation Pane (check or uncheck and see what's happen for you). It does not happen to me so often but i recon sometimes when searching for files in drives, it becomes annoying:
