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?!

Agreed, that is annoying behaviour. The best workaround I've found is Logitech's "MouseWare" app. With it installed, using the scroll wheel while the mouse is over an un-focused Window will bring that Window to the front.

Although I stopped using it a while back because it doesn't work very well with KVM switches (switch to another computer and switch back, and the scroll wheel no longer works at all).
