How to force immediate automatically refresh?
Then the new files show up on the right pane. It seems to me that creating a new file does NOT trigger an auto-refresh of WinExplorer. This was different in WinXP. There the new files were visible within a second.
How can I enable immediate auto-refresh in WinExplorer under Win7.
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
Windows 7 does not refresh automatically the folder view (until I manually refresh by pressing F5) after the following file operations:
- Create/delete/rename/move files or folders
Windows 7 Professional final release, international English version. No upgrade, clean install.
It seems to me it's a delay in my case: if I wait for approximately 30 secs, the refresh is done automatically. There are shared folders on the volumes.
Every time I rename or create a new zip or unzip into a folder it does an automatic refresh and moves all my files around automatically. It's driving me crazy.
This stupid option is making it twice as hard to rename files because the second I change the name it's rearranged even if I mistyped the name, leaving me to search for it all over again.
How do i get it to just dump everything to the end of the list like Windows XP did until i manually select refresh ( or close the folder ) ?
Is there a way to turn off or disable the automatic refresh functionality in the Windows 7 & Vista version of Windows Explorer?
Windows only recognizes my display as Generic PnP Monitor. Monitor specifications given by Hp are too general: "15.4” WXGA High Definition BrightView Widescreen (1280 x 800)"
Because of this, Windows 7 forces only 4 resolutions available, and only one refresh rate: 59Hz. It of course shows 60Hz refresh rate but it forces the 59Hz one automatically. This affects all my 3d applications deeply, I would love to fix the problem.
I keep icons in certain places for a -purpose-. I leave gaps here and there on purpose.
And for whatever reason, if I install a program, or uninstall, or send a new shortcut to the desktop, Windows has no compunction in putting the new icon where -it- wants to (and moving my arrangement around to fit.)
Also, I have 2 monitors and sometimes, after being asleep, Windows -thinks- there's only one screen and moves ALL icons over to one screen.
In short, how do I force Windows to NEVER move my icons?
Can anyone explain to me what the advantage is or how to change the settings back to the good old, create folder and 'their you go' system.
