Explorer on Windows 7

Hi, How can I get Explorer to "REFRESH" after I cut or drag some MP3's to another file.  I'm dealing with it by using F5 (refresh) but it's a real pain.  I never had that problem with XP.
Thanks

It will usually refresh after some time. If it never refreshes, try running System File Checker.

Run SFC /SCANNOW and allow to complete. Restart the computer and test again.

Please let us know.

This has been an ongoing issue since XP, but I never experienced until my last Win 7 Ultimate install, and now again since I updated to 8.1.

To fix the Win7 Ultimate issue, I used the registry trick:

Go into the Registry to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control

create a key called Update. Within that, make a DWORD value named UpdateMode with a value of 0.

I tried running the SFC /SCANNOW as you suggested but all I keep seeing is a flash of a small black window and it disappears quickly.  This happened the last time I tried to "run" something.  The other suggestion seems to be more complicated for a novice but if I can't get run to work I might give it a try.  Never fooled with the REGISTRY before.  Any suggestions on how to fix "run"?

For the SFC /SCANNOW operation:

Click on Start > type cmd

Then type in SFC /SCANNOW

First try SFC again.

Click on Start, enter cmd.exe in the box and then when cmd.exe comes up in the lists, right click on it and select Run as Administrator. A black window opens.

Now run SFC /SCANNOW.   Does it run and complete (takes about 10 minutes or so to run.

Please let us know if that works.

If SFC will not run, then you may need to run a Windows 7 Repair Install.

Sorry, that should have been:

Click on Start > type cmd > hit enter

OK, we are making headway.  Thanks for hanging in there with me.  I went to Start, typed cmd, and the screen pulled up cmd.exe.  I hit return and it brought up a black window and it said you must be an administrator to run the program.  After that it said;
C:\Users\Owner> but I don't know what to type next.  I tried 1) administrator, 2) Carlos which
is the computer's name but I am out of ideas.  How do I find out what to type next.?

OK, the black window is the command shell.

Let's try it this way:

Click on Start > type cmd > right-click on cmd > choose Run as administrator

When the console comes up, you will see:

admin cmd shell
Now type in  SFC /SCANNOW

sfc /scannow
After you enter, just sit back and wait, as it will take some time to scan your system.

During the process, you will see a percentage to let you know where you are at (I am running verify only to show screenshots)

running process

Success.  Finally, I got it to work and I tried a cut and paste operation and it worked.  I hope that that takes care of it.  I never had that problem with XP and wish I could go back to XP but I need the 64 bit power to do what I do.  Thanks very much.

I don't understand why this question is still open.  I fully intend for both moderators to split the 500 points and I don't recall doing anything differently in assigning the points.  Can someone clear this up for me please? Thanks
