"Recently", [because I don't know if it started with 1903 or possibly before that] File Explorer has started to hiccup. The File Explorer list on the left side of the window opens and I select and start drilling into some [random] directory. Then, all of a sudden, the screen refreshes and I loose my place in the drill down, and have to go searching the list again for where I was when the 'refresh' happened.

The number of files and system configuration has not had any significant changes that I am aware of; only lots of Windows 10 and Norton routine updates.

Why would File Explorer start hiccuping in this way? What relevant factors might I investigate?

There was an old issue associate with file explorer behavior coupled with having a slide show background and may have also involved the setting that says "Automatically pick an accent color from my background"
I thought that, that had pretty much been resolved, but....
It wouldn't surprise me to see it again

On mine it seems to only affect the Navigation pane until I actually open a Folder on the right pane.
