Windows 7: Documents Page Not Refreshing

Documents Page Not Refreshing

This is kinda wierd in my opinion. If I am in My Documents and if I delete a file for example it will not refresh and the deleted file is still there. If I hit the refresh button at the top of the screen it goes away.
What setting would this be in? I have never ran into this before

Ok. You might see if it may just be a glitch that restarting the computer may sort. If not, then run a SFC /SCANNOW command to see if it may be able to find and fix any corrupted system files that may be responsible.

If all else fails, then you might consider doing a system restore using a restore point dated before you had this issue to hopefully fix it.

Well............I just ran the SFCscannow and nothing turned up. I don't have system restore turned on because this is a small SSD. It is a secondary laptop that I use, so I will play around with it some more and see what happens.

I just discovered that it only does it in the My Documents section, it does not do it in Music, Pictures, or Videos.

That was easy, I highlighted Music, clicked on Folders/then clicked on Apply to All Folders. It fixed it. There must have been a setting in there that I did notice was different.

Thanks!

Strange. I guess it just needed to be toggled to get it working again. Great job of getting it sorted.
