    Refresh problem in File Explorer


    In an earlier thread, I reported that following an update file explorer no longer automatically refreshes after a deletion or change. I tried all the suggestions, but the problem persists.
    So I swapped a recently made clone of the hard drive and booted that. The same problem is happening on the clone, which was made before the problem started. The clone was problem free.when tested.a few weeks ago.
    Can anyone explain how this can happen.

    :)

    Windows Explorer refuses to refresh Explorer


    Masterchef,

    I have had this problem and so have lots of other people. None of the suggested solutions I found on the internet had anything other than a temporary effect. The problem eventually went away of its own accord but still rears its ugly head from time to time. I only kept a few links on the subject -
    Desktop or Explorer does not refresh automatically in Windows
    Windows Explorer doesn't refresh by itself - Microsoft Community
    windows file list does not auto refresh-update - Microsoft Answers [Windows 7]
    Windows Explorer doesn't refresh when moving-deleting - TechNet [Windows 7]

    When the problem reappears, I restart the computer. If that does not resolve matters then I accept the situation and don't waste my time chasing non-solutions. You might wish to consider adopting the same approach.

    All the best,
    Denis

    File explorer not refreshing after deleting files in search


    Using Windows 10 Home.
    This problem only happens if I'm performing a search.
    If I search within a folder for say *.* and then delete a file, the list of files does not refresh.
    The file remains listed even though it's been deleted.
    If I manually refresh then the file disappears from the list. Same thing happens if I undo the delete.
    I need to hit F5 to make the file reappear in the search list.

    Anyone else having this problem or know a fix? Thanks.

    -----

    Seems to be a Windows 10 prob. I went back to 8.1 and everything was fine.

    Refresh problem in File Explorer

    File explorer not refreshing after deleting files in search


    Hi you can simply hit F5 after deleting the file to refresh the explorer search results list.

    Bu that, of course, is simply a workaround, not a solution.

    View refresh in file explorer: In W7 I could refresh the file list after deleting files using the view menu and the refresh option. W10 does not remove deleted files from view at once nor does it have a way of doing it manually that I can find. I can't believe it no longer exists. Thanks J 39365
