Its just to reapply all the settings... But normally after we done some operation, we click refresh some 3 to 4 times just for a refresh of ourself😎

Nice answer akravikanth 😁. We refresh web page to reload all content. Its as simple as that. Even your computer display is refreshed at a fast rate (around 75 k cycles). But pointless right click and refresh is just waste of time 😁

a microsoft funda for slaverying you to it haha
Any way its just to remove the unreferenced contents in the main memory !!

Though the refresh thing is automated, but it relieves users superficially 😉

yeah, its pretty pointless. earllier, i used to think it was used to invoke the garbage collector (as in java types), but i guess not!
there are some nifty tools out there to clear your memory, havent personally used them though, anyone has an idea as to how they really are?

I've always used F5 to refresh a page.. it seems to clear the old cache and request all the data from a website again (instead of reusing some data from the temporary internet files). Im not sure about technical details, but it does seem to work if my page loads half way only or if theres an error. Oh well, whatever works 😉

Guys, this is one of the best Q I have ever come across on the forums!

Well, a while ago I just hated the pointless action and the people who done it. But now I do it myself... never figured out why I do it. really if someone can give a good reason.

though someone did give a good reason, its just for our sanctification. Thats it.

When we refresh by pressing F5 or using right click, the OS simply updates the contents of the folder ie it reloads all the contents.. eg: If u r in My Computer, after deleting or formatting ne disk, u mite not get the details as required.. but when u refresh, it reloads the whole page with updated details.. That's all. It doesnt boost the pc's performance.

Ha ha. Wow. Great answer. But, thats true up to certain extent.. 😁

There is no need to refresh 4-5 times every time when we close any any window, or when goes into certain directory. :smile:

here upto which i know about related to why we refresh our computer on desktop
because whenever we apply right on any folder a menu opens
when we get what we want it disappears ...but really it does not happens
actually what happens that
a invisible image of that menu still remains there to remove it we generally refresh our desktop

A refresh simply updates the contents of the current directory.
No need of refreshing 4-5 times.

refresh is used to reload the contents from the buffer memory as i notice also some of the linux Os has not the option of refresh ...,it used as to free the unnecessary resources hold by the memory ..

😀 we actually refresh to clear all the deleted process from the RAM memory... that is we are confirming by again clearing the RAM even though we have terminated the process.....

this is what i think.....

Refresh is just to reflect the latest changes done by the user. For example, I have an XYZ Project made in Netbeans as well as Eclipse also. Now instead of making changes in few files through respective IDE, I am going and making changes in the folder location itself. Now what happens, in Net beans, changes get reflected without refresh but changes in Eclipse get reflected ONLY when I do right click and select "Refresh" option. Reason might be Eclipse is developed in such a manner that it is not linked up automatically with Directory structure but Netbeans is made like that it automatically reflects the changes in folder structure in IDE instantly without refreshing. In the same way, there are many cases when many softwares or applications son't support automatic changes and thus in order to reflect them we need to use "Refresh" option.

So just like this Netbeans and Eclipse IDE strange behaviour, you can find out many more examples in your computer system also everyday and can get the answer - why do we need Refresh sometimes and why not many times.

Thanks !

We refresh our computer to clear previous operation in memory and show its current state.


To make it more simple, understand this with an example. When copying files from one folder to another, Windows regularly updates copied files on screen.


Sometimes, due to performance reasons Windows disables this feature and user can't see updated status of copied files. In that case you can use Refresh option from context menu to clear operation till now and refresh the current status.
