Windows Explorer Content Pane Refresh
Posted on 2010-03-22
We completely skipped Vista and recently started to deploy some Windows 7 units. I'm finding the Windows Explorer file manager intensely frustrating, most of all, the problem that when I am browsing up and down in the left pane folders with arrow keys, the right content pane does not automatically refresh to update the view inside the currenly active folder.
Having to press the enter, space, or f5 key every single time I want to see what is inside the folder I've just navigated to is starting to truly grate on me. Please tell me there is a setting to restore the auto-refresh behavior that was standard in XP. Surely there must be a checkbox somewhere.
