When working with the same buffer in multiple windows within one frame, it seems like the location of the cursor in, say, window A gets inadvertently set as a marker such that right after the buffer using C-x C-s in window B, the cursor in B jumps to the same cursor location as in A.

Is this normal behavior? What are the commands or settings controlling this?

    This isn't normal, and I can't reproduce it on my Emacs. Most likely you have something in your config that's causing an unexpected interaction: emacs.stackexchange.com/questions/28429/…

  • Could be (save-place-mode t) Mar 17, 2020 at 15:38
  • Can't find this command in any of my .emacs files, but it does give me an idea to either look for "save" in these files or add '(save-place-mode f)' to my personal.el file. May 5, 2020 at 16:56
