    Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64 processors

    File explorer always reverts to top of window when wallpaper changes

    Hi all,

    This issue occurs when "Automatically select highlight color from my wallpaper" checkbox is ticked.
    When I open Windows Explorer and display a long list of folders and/or files, going down through them, each time the wallpaper changes Windows Explorer reverts to the top of the list even if an element is selected lower in the list.

    From update to update this issue never has been fixed. However, I read some time ago this issue was known by MS.

    Do other users experience such an issue? Is there a way to fix it anyway (e.g. using registry) ?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi, fortunately I don't find that happening, but there could be many variables.

    Tried: explorer, details view
    Picture changed by:
    a. Wally, my wallpaper program
    b. in Settings, Picture, browse
    c. in Settings, Slideshow

    Do you find the same thing happening in Safe Mode?
