Must Refresh Explorer When Renaming/Deleting Files

When renaming or deleting a file on a mapped drive on a slow link in Windows 7, for example, via an IP address over the internet, such as the following:

net use Q: \\150.101.x.y\data

you may experience one or some of the following:

  • The changes are not reflected until you press F5 to refresh the view; or

  • The filename briefly changes back to the original name, then changes back to the new name.

This may occur if the Details Pane is enabled in the Explorer view.

  1. Click Organize in the menu bar.

  2. Choose Layout.

  3. Untick Details Pane.
