How to force immediate automatically refresh?

How to force immediate  automatically refresh?
Views: 259
Assume I opened Windows Explorer for a certain directory. Then I take a screen snaphot into a picture file or save a content into a new file from a 3rd program in this directory. Even after 5 minutes WinExplorer does NOT show the new files. I always have to click on another folder and then switch to the old folder again.
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.

Windows 7 does not refresh folder views

I've got the following problem:
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.

Folders and Files do not refresh automatically

After updating a folder (whether it is deleting, copying, pasting or renaming a file within it) the changes do not appear immediately. It is always necessary to refresh the folder manually to then see the changes have in fact taken place.

Games and refresh rate.

I just recently installed Windows 7, but there seems to be a problem with the refresh rate in games. On the desktop everything seems to be fine, but in games my refresh rate drops to 75 no matter the resolution. How do I apply a certaub refresh rate to games too? I'm running Warcraft 3 TFT if that matters.

Force folder to sort by date automatically

On some folders, I like to sort them by the date. When I do this, close the folder and open it back up, it's seems to be automatically sorted by the title. How do I fix this?

how do i stop auto sort / refresh in windows folders?

I'm hoping this is an easy fix, but I can't find it anywhere. I spend a lot of time moving files, renaming files, zipping and unzipping etc.
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 ) ?

Windows Explorer Automatic Refresh / Can I Turn Function Off?

With Windows Vista and Windows 7, when a folder is renamed, it will automatically re-sort to a new location based on the sort criteria. This is problematic from a work flow perspective. In the XP version of Windows Explorer, when a file is renamed, it maintains it's location in the list until the listing is manually refreshed, sorted, or the folder location is closed and reopened. New folders added in XP are placed at the bottom of the list until a refresh.
Is there a way to turn off or disable the automatic refresh functionality in the Windows 7 & Vista version of Windows Explorer?

Problem with the display

I have recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit on my hp dv6910el laptop, and I have a problem.
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.

Creating new folders and renaming them not refresh the folder

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.

Force Windows to NEVER move my icons

Win7 64. Is there a way to 100% FORCE desktop icons from changing position under -any- circumstances?

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?

Correct monitor flicker (refresh rate)

Flicker can be a problem on CRT monitors. LCD monitors (also called flat-panel displays) don't create flicker. A flickering CRT monitor can contribute to eyestrain and headaches. You can reduce or eliminate flicker by increasing the screen refresh rate. A refresh rate of at least 75 hertz generally produces less flicker. (Because LCD monitors don't create flicker, they don't need to be set at high refresh rates.)
