How to force Explorer to refresh?

14 May 2019, 09:09


In some situations (e.g. a timestamp of a file is changed by an AHK script...) Windows Explorer does not show accurate timestamps or icons of files. Even applaying F5 for refresh does not help in such situations.

I am not sure but maybe this updates the file icons: DllCall("Shell32\SHChangeNotify", Int,0x8000000, UInt,0, Ptr,0, Ptr,0).

Is there a way to force a real refresh resulting in updated timestamps?
