  1. Windows Explorer stops auto refreshing


    Sometimes Windows Explorer stops auto refreshing randomly for no reason. I must press F5 everytime i made changes, quite annoying. Restarting all Explorer.exe processes from task manager solved it, but the problem comes back again later

    Do anyone know what caused this problem?

    Windows Explorer auto-refresh on color change

    I have had this problem for a while now and there is a fix for it however whenever the color of the task bar changes it auto-refreshes windows explorer so if I'm half way scrolling through a long list of songs or movies it jumps back to the top. Only fix
    I can find is to disable the feature entirely. That fix does work but I would like to know if anyone (or even a microsoft tech) has registry fix to stop this auto-refresh or maybe shred some light onto this issue and get it fixed

  3. Windows 10 File Explorer: No Automatic Refresh

    After a few days, File Explorer stops automatically refreshing. Operations like:

    • Adding or renaming a file
    • Deleting a file
    • Adding a folder
    • Moving a file/folder
    • etc.
    complete successfully, but nothing happens visually until I manually press F5.

    Some of you may realize that this question has
    been asked several
    times
    before, like this one nine
    years ago
    . I've tried every single resolution step I can find that's been suggested. The problem always returns.

    I think it's time someone from Microsoft answers this question properly. Why does a well documented bug like this go this long without a fix? Can you provide a solution that works and hasn't been blindly copied and pasted multiple times?

    Windows Explorer stops auto refreshing

    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
