With the Windows 10 getting frequent updates, while there are many new useful features added, there are also a few issues that come along. There’s this common issue where the scroll bar does not scroll down and constantly stays up. This means, even if you are trying to pull the scroll bar down using your mouse, it jumps back to top.
For instance, you open the File Explorer and try to scroll down, but the scroll bar doesn’t go down. It’s stuck at the top. This can be really annoying and makes it difficult to view or access files or folders towards the bottom. So, how do you fix this issue? Let’s find out how.
1. For some users , usually 4k screen users, try this. Just resize file explorer by grabbing its one of the corner.
2. Try using a different mouse and if the issue seems to does not occur, then your mouse may be the reason for this. Change your Mouse.
