Windows 10: Folder Jumps To The Top. (SOLVED!!!)

Stop Windows Folders From Jumping To The Top:

You’re scrolling down a list of files in a folder, and it suddenly jumps to the top. You scroll down again and a few seconds later – same thing! The list of files keeps jumping to the top.

This problem is super annoying, but it’s an easy resolution. It’s caused by the desktop slideshow, and the color setting “Automatically Pick An Accent Color From My Background”.

When the slideshow image changes, File Explorer refreshes itself in order to load the new accent color. This refresh forces your folder window to jump to the top on every picture change.

To stop this from happening, you’ll need to disable the accent color setting, which stinks because I actually really like this feature. It’s a known bug with Windows 10, and I’ve been getting complaints about it for over 5 years now.

I’m very disappointed that Microsoft hasn’t fixed it yet. Until they do, this workaround will stop the annoying folder jumps.

THE SOLUTION: Disable Your Accent Color

Step 1: Open your Start Menu, and click on “Settings”

Step 2: Click “Personalization”

Step 3: Click “Colors” (on the left frame)

Step 4: Scroll down until you see “Automatically Pick An Accent Color From My Background”, and uncheck the box.

Hope this helps!
