Windows – Why does the Windows Explorer no longer refresh itself

windowswindows 7windows-explorer

Normally when you do a file operation in Windows Explorer then Explorer refreshes itself. So I delete a file, and it's gone.

But since yesterday when I for example delete a file, the file entry doesn't disappear. It only disappears when closing and reopening the folder, or when pressing F5. What could that be?

I suggest you have a look at this thread in the Microsoft TechNet forums. This may be related to a known issue with Windows 7.
