    Files doesn't refresh on Explorer when deleted

    I see a strange behavior on my Windows 10 Explorer. When I delete files, at times the Explorer window is not refreshed automatically. I mean, when deleted I expect the file to disappear right away from view. But it doesn't happen. I need to manually refresh
    the folder or move back and reopen the folder to see the refreshed list of folders. Is this a known bug? I am guessing my PC's performance is not the culprit, I have 8 GB RAM, 4 MB L2 Cache on Core i5 5th Gen processor.

    When I try to re-delete the same file (which is just now deleted), I indeed see the error "File missing". Which means, the file gets deleted, just the refresh of explorer window failed.

    Thanks,

  5. Thats a long time with no response.

    Could be your question isn't really clear. This is what I assume.

    You download a file to the download folder, you open up the download folder and can't find the file that was downloaded seconds before ? If that is correct, I have found that it is best to have that folder sorted in descending sentence of "Date Modified". This will always place the file with the latest date at the top. Now if you have the download folders open in file explorer, you will have to refresh the display, since explorer will not automatically updated that folder.

    Hope that answers your question.
