    File/Folder Rename Refresh Issue

    A few users are having a problem whereby they rename a file/folder and it doesn't rename instantly.

    In order to see the new given name a user has to either click back and go straight back into the folder that they came out of to see the new given name or hit F5.

    Is there a way of curing this problem?

    No, I'm not. It's more \\servername\users$\username

    I think I've managed to fix it with this registry amendment:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoSimpleNetIDList"=dword:00000001

    Yeah, it did mention somewhere on the MS website it only affects DFS shares, but I thought I'd give it a try anyway as I wasn't finding anything viable.

    Thanks for your responses.
