Window content does not refresh after moving a file

The problem: I just drag & drop a file from a Window to another and it just don't disappear from the first one until I press F5 (refresh).

Again I'm really surprised how the most basic things doesn't work as they should (event after years of development).

Can you give me any solution ?

Visible Content When Moving a Window
I know there's a setting somewhere that keeps a Window's content visible when you're dragging it around. It was behaving that way till recently. I think a MS update might have reset it. Anyone?
