Small file explorer issue

Just got a new computer with Windows 11. It's not too bad, but much better after I found a few programing tweeks to get back features I was used to.

Anyway, one small issue I've noticed is that say I have a folder with a lot of items in it (videos / pics etc...). I've noticed that the folder will jump back to the top after a certain time. I'll be towards the bottom, and if I switch to something else and then comeback a few minutes later, the folder will have jumped back to the top at the beginning and I've lost the spot where I was. It gets annoying to have to scroll back down to where you left off. Is there any fix to this? Only thing I've come across is the slideshow bug from W10, and mine is not set to the slideshow

What I've seen on both of mine appears to be re-indexing of the list/s.

My explorer does not jump back to the top as you describe. As long as the explorer window is left open, the last file selected remains highlighted in the list of files, even after a long period of time. If I close the explorer window and then reopen explorer again, I have to find "my place" in the list of files again.

Mine does this on big folders without even having to switch to another window. Very irritating. Pretty sure it happened in Windows 10 too.
