How to force immediate automatically refresh?

How to force immediate  automatically refresh?
Views: 261
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

Windows 7 does not refresh folder views Icon
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

Folders and Files do not refresh automatically Icon
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.
 

DNS Client Service Reset - failing over to wireless connection.

DNS Client Service Reset - failing over to wireless connection. Icon

My laptop is set up so that it is connected to a wired and wireless connection when docked so that when I undock it automatically fails over to the wireless connection. The wired and wireless are in different sub-nets. This worked fine until about 2 months ago when it started having issues.

The wireless seems to stay connected properly and I can ping IP address, however domain names no longer resolve. If I let the machine sit or about 15 minutes or do a troubleshoot it figured itself out but that is really a pain when you are going to meeting and have to wait for the machine to fix itself every time.

After a bunch of troubleshooting I figured out that if I restarted the DNS Client service on the machine it immediately started working again. My question is has anybody else come across this problem and if so is there a way to force the DNS Client to refresh automatically when the primary network connection goes away?

 

Games and refresh rate.

Games and refresh rate. Icon
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.
 

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

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

Windows Explorer Automatic Refresh / Can I Turn Function Off? Icon
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

Problem with the display Icon
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.

How to force IE10 to run in 32 bit mode?

How to force IE10 to run in 32 bit mode? Icon

I am running 64bit Windows 7 with SP1 and all updates. I have an AXIS network IP camera that I use to check on my bedridden mom. When running IE9 I could use the 32bit version and everything worked fine but it would not work on the 64bit version.

I upgraded to IE10 which automatically installed the 64bit version. Now, the video works fine but there is no sound. I am hoping there is a way to force IE10 to run in 32bit mode so the sound will work again but I can't figure out how to make it run in 32bit mode. how do I do it?
