    Hello Kamrul, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you like for now, pressing the F5 key will refresh the current active item.

    Did your Refresh context menu get messed up?

    Thanks Brink.
    I don't have problem in context menu or F5. I just need dos command.

    I'm not aware of a DOS command for refresh.

    If you like, you could use a .vbs file to run your command in instead, then use the command below to refresh.

    Code:
    Set WSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    
    WshShell.SendKeys "{F5}"

    I think Brink has the situation covered.

    Thanks Brink. It works for vbs. Any way to use it in batch file? For example below is my batch file. It's a tool for my native language.

    @echo off
    title Avro setup
    echo.
    echo.
    echo. Please wait...
    echo. Installing Avro Keyboard 5.5
    "%~dp0setup.exe" /VERYSILENT /NORESTART
    tskill "Avro Keyboard"
    Refresh command will use here
    copy Bijoy2003.avrolayout "%allusersprofile%\Application Data\Avro Keyboard\Keyboard Layouts"
    copy UniBijoy.avrolayout "%allusersprofile%\Application Data\Avro Keyboard\Keyboard Layouts"
    del "%allusersprofile%\Desktop\Avro Spell Checker.lnk" /f /q
    exit

    Perfect.

    There's not an option to refresh with a .bat file, but you could run the .vbs file within the .bat file if needed.
