Windows 7: Explorer does not refresh when deleting file

Explorer does not refresh when deleting file

Sorry for my amateurish question, but my workplace is using Windows 7 and I am discovering some things that are different to XP.

When delete a file, windows explorer does not show that the file has been deleted.

I have to press F5 in order to show that it has been deleted.

Is there something I am doing wrong?

Cheers,
Lee

Hi again Lee. This seems to be a common occurance and I've not seen a fix for it other than what you are doing, refresh explorer. This happens with my PC as well.

This problem occurs regularly here as well. Rebooting always solves it for me.
