    Navigation Pane always opens scrolled at bottom

    Hello All,

    This is a minor thing, but as we know after time small things become annoying.

    Every time I open File Explorer, or any folder, the Navigation Pane is scrolled at the bottom. I have to scroll to the top to access the Quick Access folders which kinda works against the idea of them being quick. One would think that when opening folders, the Navigation Pane should be scrolled to the top with Quick Access available right there no scrolling requiring. It doesn't make sense it opens scrolled to the bottom.

    It's like water torture, one drop at a time driving me crazy.

    Hello Gene,

    Do you mean for when it will automatically expand to the current folder in the navigation pane?

    I mean that when you open a folder, the Navigation Pane on the left is scrolled to the bottom. It seems like it should open with the Navigation Pane scrolled to the top, as this is where the Quick Access folders are.

    I tried to attach a screen shot to illustrate what I'm talking about, hope it's attached

    I don't see a screenshot uploaded or attached to your posts.

    For now, check to make sure you have "This PC" set to open to Quick Access by default if wanted to see if that helps any.

    Here's how to reset the Navigation Pane state:
    1. Close all Explorer windows
    2. Open Regedit & navigate to
    3. In the right-hand pane, delete the value named ExpandedState.
    4. Log off & log back on.
