    File Explorer Windows 10 - screen keeps refreshing to the top

    After opening File Explorer in Windows 10 and scrolling down the navigation pane, after a few seconds the navigation pane returns to the top of the page. This happens even if an item is selected (not opened). Occurs with the preview pane open or closed. Very frustrated.

    This is not an uncommon issue and is often caused by a desktop or background element being set to refresh every so often.

    thank you - can you offer some suggestions which programs or types of programs may be affecting this?

    Check in Windows itself, where the desktop background pictures or color elements are configured and where they are set to update or refresh. That has caused issues of this type for some users.
