    Delay in new folder/file to show up


    Hi,

    My laptop is top of the range spec one with Core i7, 8GB RAM, Dedicated GPU, every thing else work super fast, i am very annoyed by this one problem which i have been observing

    When ever i create a new folder/file or download a new file or rename a new file it does not immediately show up, if i try to open the renamed file it says windows cannot find that file (because its actually been renamed but does not yet show up in the folder), Every time i have to press F5 to refresh the folder or the desktop so the computer refreshes and shows the changes made (i.e new folder, renamed folder, new file etc...)

    Is there a way so computer immediately shows the change rather than me having to close and open that folder or refresh the page every time i rename or create a file ?

    Thanks
    Safy

    Do you have any other right-click options that are slow to respond?

    No just happens when new file or folder is created or if a folder is renamed

    OK, try that test again, and this time watch to see if the bar starts to turn green (like its doing a search) everytime you try and rename a folder. See screenshot below:

    I need to know before I make anymore suggestions.

    OK, a few things to try:

    Disable the Windows Search service to disable indexing
    or
    Go to Control Panel> Indexing Options and rebuild the index
