Windows explorer doesn't always refresh


New Member
I've been having a problem with my windows 7 laptop recently. Sometimes when I either create a new folder or copy & paste some photos they don't show up until I press the f5 button then they become visable. This doesn't happen all the time though it can be quite random. I've googled this problem and have read it could be caused by an error with a windows update but can't find a fix for it. Hope someone may know how to fix this problem. Thanks

did you try right clicking on the desk top and hit refresh would it make the file show up if you check ?
