Hi
I need some kind help from you people. I hope you will help me if the issue is already known.

I got a laptop from university with windows 8.1 Pro installed in it. On a general scale, i am not a windows 8 or 8.1 fan at all, i was more comfortable with 7. However, i am using it.
i have this strange issue with windows 8.1 explorer scroll bar. This specially happens in pictures folder. They are set to show thumbnails of images as default settings. When i click the wallpaper and right click to set it as desktop background, it sets it but folder scroll bar jumps to top of folder along with the images. Let me explain a bit more:
Let's say i am at the middle of wallpaper folder, or at the bottom, i click some image and set it to desktop background, after the image is set as desktop background, the explorer scroll bar AND images jump to the top of folder (to the very first row of images in the same folder)

I have not messed with any setting of mouse wheel or anything else. I also have windows 7 installed, and i have no such issue with it. Can someone please let me know what is this problem due to, and what is the solution?

So, if anyone can please help me out, i shall be very thankful as i am frustrated with this problem.

Click View then Options at far right then click on Change folder and search options.

See if Automatically expand to current folder is checked or unchecked. Whichever it is, try it the other way.
