Need to constantly refresh to make files go to the bin

I need to constantly refresh my RTM desktop to apply any changes i do ( copy files, delete files, etc) For example when I delete something, I have to click refresh in order for it to go away from the desktop to the recycle bin... Why is that ?

What if you delete something from a folder. Do you have to refresh the folder as well. Or does this only happen on your desktop?
