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?!

Thom, this article raises one valid and well defended point, that yanking a scroll "blob" up or down and moving the mouse beyond the length of the scrollbar should not reset position.


and here on win 7 it doesn't do it
and i've never seen experienced it
but the reset when movieng away to the side is realy annoying

Windows 7 does do it here... But not on all applications: Internet Explorer 8 doesn't do it, Outlook 2007 doesn't do it, Chrome does do it as does Notepad++.
