Search: Different behaviour on WinXP and Win7

    I´m using KeePass 2.20.1 and when I have a search result with items from different groups which I move through with the cursor keys, I noticed this behaviour:

    Win XP: The title of the group will not be selected
    Win 7: The title and all of the group´s items will be selected

    I checked the configuration on both KeePass instances and couldn´t find a difference that could cause this. Is this a feature or just an unexpected behaviour?

    This is a feature of Win7. WinXP didn't support this selection behavior yet.

    Best regards

    Is there a way to disable this? I find it rather distracting.

    I've searched, but didn't find any way to disable this behavior, sorry.

    Fortunately, when you press the cursor key once more, the next entry gets selected and all others of the group are deselected again; thus I don't think this is that annoying.

    That´s a pity, but thanks for your help =)
    Not annoying but a little bit distracting as I have one system with XP and one with 7
