Solution Explorer Tree - How to stop scrolling on expansion

    Question

  • Hi All,

    Have a fairly large project with numerous folders and dozens of items in those folders.  I find that when expanding a folder, for examples Views in an MVC project, that the folder expands but the tree scrolls so that the last item in the folder is shown.

    This causes the tree to jump up and, in some case, moves the folder that was opened right to the top of the window.

    A similar thing also occurs when closing a folder.

    Does anyone know of a way to change this behaviour so that the folder that was just opened or closed stay right where it is with no tree scrolling at all?

    Thanks

  • Hi OzTrak,

    According to your description, I have check the options in Tools->Options->Project and Solutions, there is no any settings that could resolve this issue.

    And we could just use the following shortcut menu to operate the scroll (right click the scroll).

    I suggest you could submit a suggestion to the User Voice with the following link. Then share your link here and mark your reply as answer to help others who have the same idea as yours to vote and comment.
