    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

  3. Windows 10 File Explorer auto updates

    IF you hit the F5 button it does what I would expect it to do when explorer auto refreshes.

    There is a discrepancy with windows 10 where the auto refresh and F5 act different. F5 will keep the selected file/folder within the view able area, while auto refresh removes the selected file/folder out of view when the selected file/folder is out of view
    if the scroll bar is in the top most position.

    This is still a problem, none of the troubleshooting steps above have helped.

    I am finding hundreds of forums online with the same issue, no resolution.
