    F5 not working

    F5 does not refresh the active window.. How to get that function back? Example: I click My Computer, look at “Free Space” – I delete many files, press F5, amount of Free Space hasn’t changed.

    Thank you.

    Hi, Bruce - I delete the files from Search window using Shift-Delete. Are you suggesting I send them to Recycle and del from there?

    Thanks.

    No, but you didn't say you didn't.
