My son and I swapped laptops.  Long story!  LOL        I am on vacation and every page I load of PBS  goes to the bottom of the page.       I click on Discussions, it goes to the bottom,   I click on a thread, it goes to the bottom of the first page and so on.   Is there ANY way for me to change this.  It is quickly driving me nutso!  Well, short trip but I'm on my way.        Thanks!

you would know if you have the Windows Vista operating system when you boot it up, it usually says it right in the middle of the screen

My PC did that the other day, was driving me nuts until I figured out the book I was logging in was sitting on the space bar. Maybe it is something simple like a stuck key.

Nope don't have Vista - space key seems to be working well.     Talked to son tonight and he has NO idea and he makes his living on computers!  Grrrr - guess I will live with it until I get back to my home computer.  Thanks gang for trying to help.

I think it may be a browser issue.  Which browser is it using?

DH has had the keyboard issue several times. He will set something down and it will catch the side of the keyboard and drive him insane until he figures out why the computer is doing all sorts of weird stuff.

Sounds like yours is keeping some setting in the browser that you do not want. I know mine will do that if I read a thread, go back to the list, and then go back to the same thread.
