Photoshop: Layers panel scrolls when duplicating a layer

Now day's: When I duplicate a layer in Photoshop (Cmnd+J) the layer menu scrolls automatically so that the new layer shows at the top of the layers menu.
I find this extremely annoying because I don't want the layers menu to scroll automatically at all! (Another Photoshop thing that was good but not anymore.)

Is there anyone who has the same experience and do you like this behavior? And can I disable this new behavior?

I'm not sure what you mean here. When I use Cmd-J, the scrollbar jumps a teeny bit, but it just puts the image right on top of the image I just duplicated. Not at the top of the layers panel. Can you provide a before and after screenshot of your Layers panel so one of us here can try to replicate the issue?

Yes. A video of what you're doing and seeing would be most helpful.

Strange...
The issue seemed to have resolve it self.

It seems I've complained a bit to early.
(Perhaps because of my discontentment about the developments of the Photoshop user interface lately.)

Anyway, thanks for you reply's.
