Hello,

Currently, in the 'Settings' app, the vertical scrolled position of a page is not retained and always defaults to the top position when navigating to and from any page.

For example, navigate to:

1. Settings > Privacy & Security
On this page, you will see various settings.

2. Scroll down and in the 'App Permissions' section, click on 'Videos' or any other setting in that group.
It takes you to the 'Videos' settings page.

3. Now click on the Back arrow button to go back to the 'Privacy & Security' page.

The page will now be shown from the first setting on the top instead of retaining the scrolled position on the page. This is very frustrating as we need to again scroll down and go to the desired option when doing any repetitive tasks. (For example, setting or viewing some options for various apps).

Just wanted to check if this is just me or a bug/missing feature in Windows itself? It would be great if Windows remembers the last left position of any page for that session (until the window is closed). I can't believe this feature is not available yet in Windows.

I don’t believe that these are supposed to be memory abled, as you’re describing it. Possibly would be good, yes. Other apps do it, it is practical sometimes, especially when there are quite a few settings.
