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?!

Why shift-click when you could use the MMB? ;)

Thank you guys. I've been annoyed by this behaviour forever. I usually scroll up down in documents with the keyboard. However I often find myself wanting to go somewhere in a long document. Scrolling down with page-up/down takes forever, but clicking into the scrollbar just did the same thing. I never knew you could use the MMB or shift-click. Never thought of trying either.

Cheers
Jochen

Likewise. I've used windows since 3.x but never knew about this feature.

Then again it took me 8 years to learn that I could paste with shift+insert instead of ctrl+v.
