  1. Search result in Win10 1909 file explorer doesn't refresh anymore?


    If I use the "new" search function (in the windows 10 b1909 file explorer) to list all pdf in my actual directory and all subdirectories I type *.pdf in the higher right corner search field and get the correct result.

    But if I mark them all (CTRL+a) and press the DEL key, it doesn't refresh the result anymore (the list of pdf remain visible. If I try to delete this files again, I get an error message, that this files doesn't exist anymore, still remaining in the search result).
    In most cases, I even have to restart the explorer.exe to get back my working file explorer.

    Is this a known issue since build 1909?

    Do you know how to get the list refreshing automatically without restart of the process "explorer.exe"?

    :)

    Explorer search results - Does not update (refresh) when delete a file

    I saw some older posts related to this from 2016 but nothing with a solution. The problem is:

    I search in explorer for files (ie "*.jpg") it will give me a list of results. I delete a file from the list of results (either hitting delete key or right click and delete) and even though it is deleted, it still appears in the list. It will stay in the list until I either refresh the list or re-do the same search.

    Other people with the same issue said that the results would refresh on their own after a couple of seconds but mine never will unless I do it manually. This was happening in version 1809 and I updated Windows to the most recent version (1903) and it is still the same issue.

    I thought it could be related to the number of results but it doesn't matter if there are 500 or 1, it does not refresh. I am experiencing this behavior on two different computers.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    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.
