Windows 10: Desktop not updating Solved

    Desktop not updating

    If I save things to the desktop I can't see them - either on the desktop itself or in File Explorer showing the desktop - until I press F5 to refresh. Anyone else getting this?

    This is not a solution. Might as well say "get a sledgehammer, pulverize the damn thing and get a Mac."

    Thanks for your input but clean install did solve it.

    No one replied for a couple of months so I closed as the problem was gone. Through numerous upgrades over the last 2 years it didn't come back.

    I'd suggest opening a new thread if you have a problem.
