    Automatic refresh doesn't work in File Explorer, Desktop, Recycle etc.


    I recently upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10.
    One of the greatest problems now is that whenever I use files and folders (moving, renaming, deleting...) there is NO automatic change in file explorer, desktop or recycle bin unless I refresh them manually. Is there a fix for this ?

    You can try
    SFC /Scannow
    from an elevated command prompt.

    Then there's
    DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image - Windows 10 Forums

    Failing that, you could try an in-place upgrade repair install.

    But I understood from your other post you are trying to upgrade to the anniversary edition. If you can succeed with that, that may well resolve that as you will have a new copy of Windows, unless the problem is caused by a setting which is copied over.

    Note that the anniversary edition resolves the bug where an item is deleted from explorer search list and the display was not refreshed.

    SFC /Scannow
    gives the following result:

    Beginning System Scan. This process will take some time.
    Beginning verification phase of system scan.
    Verification 100% complete.
    Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

    Next to try is DISM then..
    Yes, ideally I would like to update to anniversary edtion and hope it would resolve this issue as well, trouble is I am trying to avoid reinstall and ISO and getting into potentially worse problems along the way , thats why I am trying and seeking all these simpler options.

    Hi, ok that certainly establishes a good baseline.

    Now, the general comment here is that there are more issue with upgrades than clean installs. That's logical. From what you say, since upgrading you've found refresh never occurs. That tends to suggest sthg inherited from Win 7 is affecting Win 10.

    Could you see what happens in Safe Mode?

    Sounds like a corrupt user profile.

    Create another user account, see if that works for you. If so, move your files to the new account and delete the old one.

    Then do the update to Build 14.393.10.

    Yes, it could be that something from Windows 7 is creating the problem, I've found some comments of people saying that certain options should be changed in Windows 7 BEFORE upgrading to Windows 10, like disabling uprades for Windows 7 itself... sadly I only saw those comments AFTER I upgraded so its now too late.

    In Safe Mode I did manage to delete WindowsDistribution contents but that didn't solve anything, in relation to being unable to update Windows 10.

    I have downloaded ISO file, Windows 10, English language, x64... as things are I will most likely try with that in hope that it would solve both problems of no automatic refresh & no automatic update working.

    Will check those out, thank You.

    ..I was thinking 'does explorer refresh in safe mode'?
