Is there a command from VB5 that'll refresh the Win95 Enviroment including the taskbar, the desktop, etc.?

Not directly in VB, but you can do that using API calls.

Use GetDesktopWindow call to get the handle of the desktop window and then
there's another api (I'm not sure the name) to make the window to repaint itself.

How do I do that?  How do I find out the name of the other API call?
