I've just moved from Windows XP to 7, and 7 seems to have this bizarre bug in Explorer (the one for files, not Internet Explorer). When I'm opening folders in the left-hand pane without selecting them, if I wait for about 3 seconds before opening the next one, the view will jump to display the folder I have selected, rather than the series of folders I'm opening. It's quite frustrating when I open a folder, search around for the sub-folder I want, only to have to drag the view back down from what is usually the OS drive. This happens on both my home and work computers. Why does this happen and how can I prevent it?
Edit: I have just noticed that, at least on my work computer, when it does this, it also opens/finds the other computers on the network, which refreshes the pane, which is what resets the scroll to the selected folder. This usually happens a few seconds after the window is opened, and not at any other time. It also mostly happens on Open/Save dialogues, not Explorer so much. Still no closer to fixing the issue, though.
