Graphics, User Interfaces For as long as I can remember, I've been having issues with scrolling in Windows and its applications. When scrolling via dragging the scroll blob, it seemed as if Windows had the annoying habit of randomly resetting your scroll blob to its starting position, which irritated me to no end. It took me a while to figure out, but I finally know when this behaviour occurs - now I just need to know: why?!

Not in KDE 4

I'm using KDE 4.3 here and it doesn't behave like that.

But I can see where they came with that. Microsoft does everything so the user can undo if regretted. Even a simple scrolling. So, if the insecure and shivering user regrets his daring scrolling operation, he can back off safely to where it was. ;)

FYI: Clicking on the scroll bar but above/below the scroll block, usually has the same effect as pressing PageUp or PageDown on the keyboard.

You can undo pretty much any drag-n-drop operation in Windows (before you release the mouse button), including dragging the scroll bar, by pressing the ESC key.

The ESC while dragging the scrollbar doesn't work in XP.
