    Hey all. I've been having an issue with folders not refreshing automatically, for example if I open a folder and scroll to the bottom, then minimize and do something else, when I restore the folder it's always back at the top again. I have to press F5 every time before I minimize then it's okay. Long story short, I figured out it's the "Single-click to open an item" in Folder Options that's causing it. It doesn't do it when I set it to "Double-click." As much of a pain as it is to manually refresh every time I'd like to keep using single-click. Can anyone think of an explanation for why it's behaving this way or if there's a workaround. (Vista) Thanks.

    After a little more experimentation the click option doesn't seem to be the real issue. If I refresh when I initially focus on the folder, it remembers from then on until I focus on another folder or task, then it forgets. I think it must be Vista. I don't remember XP ever doing this. I guess I'll just live with it. :)
