Updating windows explorer
I'd really appreciate some advice here if possible. Thanks for the quick reply but I'm not sure how to open an elevated command prompt.
My _sense_ is that the problem crops up when one copies or moves large amounts of data or extremely large files with Windows Explorer.I've tried everything I could find with Google, short of re-installing Windows 10...which I'm loathe to do. I suffered through this "WEDR" issue (Windows Explorer Does Not Refresh) on an new Win7 PC I bought some number of years ago.I never could solve the problem, so I returned the computer and bought a slightly different one.Did you install any app recently, that added itself to File Explorer - you can check that by right clicking and see if the app added menus and such?This is a problem that occurs in multiple Windows versions.Sorry, I've been around long enough that I should probably know these things.
OK, I Googled and found out how to do the command prompt thing but when I did as you suggested it said "You must be an administrator running a console session in order to use the sfc utility." So I don't know what to do about that.
Since you are a photo guy, I am wondering if you transferred large amounts of data to your new pc using Windows Explorer. Maybe you'll get lucky and some patch will fix it for you.
This has been an intermittent problem for many versions of Windows. Joe I suffered through this "WEDR" issue (Windows Explorer Does Not Refresh) on an new Win7 PC I bought some number of years ago.
I had it on Windows 7 and 8 and it is not of easy solution, unless it was caused by an app or some other situation that changed Explorer (such as registry changes).
If you can trace this showing up, to a specific point in time, I would maybe suggest going to a restore point for a date before this started happening.
Compatibility considerations Upgrading to the most recent version of Internet Explorer isn’t completely catch-free, unfortunately.
