BUGGY LIBRARIES: Often Windows Explorer doesn't refresh the file listing after file operations

@Zingapuro

If you navigate to your user folder (typically C:\Users\%username%), you'll find My Documents, Pictures, Music, and Videos.

I just dragged these three into the Favourites section in the left pane to make shortcuts, and minimized Libraries so I don't accidentally click on them.

@broccauley

I really haven't seen it since I stopped using libraries. It has worked for me on 3 installations on two very different computers.

DontRefresh is an Office 2007 key, no wonder it makes no difference.

For a lot of people it only happens in Libraries. I've added direct shortcuts (C:\Users\%username\Documents instead of Libraries\Documents) and I haven't had this problem since.

I've also disabled indexing everywhere except the start menu since I don't search that often. That might also have something to do with it.

I have that update installed and it has made no difference.

Still only happens in Libraries for me.

That...that's just the source of a page. It's not the same thing as the code behind it -_-

Windows Image & Fax Viewer doesn't animate animated gifs

W7 has a bug or something with the colour calibration. If you delete the calibration profile (google it), photo viewer becomes super fast.

Thanks for the site, Long. :)

See you during the Windows 8 beta perhaps? :P

Untoggling Auto-Arrange in Windows Explorer

Wrote on April 24, 2010, 5:30pm

Well, I could manually re-order files, and turn off autoarrange by right clicking in a folder > View > Untick Auto Arrange.

Also, you can freely place files and icons around without having to follow a grid alignment. (You already can do that on the desktop, but they had disabled it in explorer)

It's possible, I guess. I've set my network to Public and disabled all sharing for what it matters.

Someone from MS on the thread on TechNet did submit this as a bug to the team:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-U...f42-b1df-3c2394417b6e/

Maybe we'll see a fix in SP1, but I don't have high hopes, for some reason :p
