    GREAT NEWS SO FAR !!! I think I got it and I'm not even sure how !
    Last thing I was trying out was uninstalling all network adapters in Device Manager - I was going through all possible solutions on various websites and someone somewhere suggested this worked for them, so I gave it a try and initially got into bigger mess as I lost my local area connection and could only connect via wi-fi. I was also experimenting with some driver updates. I'm not sure if this did the trick... also I did restart & was previously going through almost all from the following - could be option 8 or 10 :
    What to do when Windows Explorer doesnt refresh | ITworld

    Automatic refresh now works smoothly everywhere - Desktop, Windows Explorer, both C: and external drives.

    PS. Some other things things I've also changed recently is Performance Options / Selected - Adjust For Best Appearance, I uninstalled some programs like GoogleDrive, CyberGhost, WindowsUpdateAssistant...

    Its hard to tell what made the difference, but whats most important is that annoying issue seems to be solved and I can properly work with files and folders once again.

    Another positive & significant change, for the first time available Windows updates are showing up in Settings,
    this has never happened before, it has to be that refresh & updating problem are somehow connected, hopefuly now I'll be able to update as well :

    Great-you've been very patient, and patience sometimes has its rewards. That was an article I suggested in #6.
