Windows 7 Annoying Bug: Explorer doesn’t refresh automatically when Create/delete/move any file/folder

Filed under: Microsoft Related — Tags: , — Syed Jahanzaib / Pinochio~:) @ 11:42 AM

Today I found an annoying Bug in Windows 7 (Win7 Professional x86).
When a user try to Create / Delete/ Move any file from the Desktop, it still shows at desktop and when the user press F5 , it instantly appears/disappears, seems like windows Explorer auto refresh not working properly.

This resolved the issue for me:

Go to
Tools / Folder Options / General Tab,
and at  the bottom, in the ‘Navigation Pane‘, make sure ‘Show all folders‘ and Automatically expand to current folder‘ are checked.
As showed in the image below . . .

show-files

.

show-files2.


 

Another alternate method contributed by user…

Open explorer –> right click on Documents –> in the documents library pane click the Restore Defaults button –> click Apply

  6. Tried almost every suggestion on the net,but nothing helped solving my specific problem.

    After spending several hours myself this fixed it for me:

    Open explorer –> right click on Documents –> in the documents library pane click the Restore Defaults button –> click Apply

    Problem solved 🙂

  7. No. none worked.
    But open task manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL), in Process tab right+click explorer.exe and terminate. Now choose File > run write explorer or explorer.exe. Et voilá! Working.
