Windows File Explorer Refresh Issue



  • File Explorer generally will 'actively' refresh the file list when you copy or create a new file in a directory.

    However, I have a computer that you have to use the F5 or Right click Refresh in order to list updates of a new file.

    I found one solution to be to default the Windows Themes, but that didn't work:

    Right click on desktop 
    Click Personalize 
    Click Themes
    Click Change desktop icons 
    Restore default & OK
    

    Has anyone else encountered this refresh issue with File Explorer? If so, how did you correct the issue.

    I have this issue with an HDD on WIndows 10 on an old computer. I fixed this with an SSD 🙂



  • Nicely done @dbeato

    In this case, I may have resolved the issue. I created a new folder in the \server\share\path and Windows File Explorer showed it created fine. But, there was one folder that didn't show.

    I renamed it and it appeared in the list, renamed it back, and it was still there. So - Could have been a folder UID issue? or something. But AORN - it's resolved.
