Topic "file listing keeps flipping to the currently selected file"

Author Message


WinSCP 5.9.3 (7136) under Windows Server 2012 R2, SFTP-3, Explorer GUI.

File panel with the directory tree on the left. On the right the files in the active directory, "Details" view style.
When I scroll up or down in that panel, using the slider on the scrollbar and not the up and down arrow keys, after a few seconds the visible part of the panel flips back to the portion of the list that contains the currently selected file.
This means I cannot study the contents of the directory that are not listed close to the currently selected file, I have to select another one to keep the view where I want it. Apparently, the currently selected file cannot be out of sight for more than a few seconds.

Is there a way to switch this off ?

WinSCP does not behave like this usually. There must be something special about your system.

Can you maybe record a video to demonstrate the problem?

Is there something unusual about your system? Some Windows shell extension? Unusual Windows theme? Unusual pointing device?
