Scroll Here in Windows 7

Monday, August 27th, 2012 by | Filed Under: Windows Explorer

If you’re like me you’ve got a lot of folders, all chock-full of various file types. Also, (if you’re like me, that is), you have a pretty good understanding of where everything’s at, too. So you open Windows Explorer, grab the slider and scroll down to where the file you need is at and you’re all set, right?

Well, did you know you can also right-click your destination on the Windows Explorer scroll bar and choose Scroll Here to zap around, too? There are also options for Page up, Page Down, Top and Bottom, too!

It’s kind of fun, plus it gives you an alternative to the boring ol’ grab and scroll!

Try it out today, Windows 7 Users!

    Please expand on this tip and reissue it as there seems to be some info missing. I tried this and nothing happens…I’m not sure what exactly is supposed to take place.

  8. Hedley Grenfell-Banks says:

    Didn’t work for me, either. Anyway, why not just click on any item in a list, and type the first letter of the one you actually want?

    Worked fine for me. Did everyone right click in the scroll bar ?
