Default Download Location.

Post by Ted Myers »

Hello Folks, for years, my default download location for jpg, png & txt etc has been my Desktop. Now I have to right click on it & select 'Refresh' to get them to appear. Do you have any idea why?
If it wasn't for bad luck I'd have NO luck at all.

Which browser are you using?

I've noticed that Windows 10 doesn't always update folders immediately, recently...
Left-clicking on the desktop and pressing F5 will probably work too

Previously if I needed to do as your link, I clicked Windows Explorer.exe - end task then restart it, using Windows 7
