Have tried changing each Personalize setting one-by-one but Windows 10 continues to refresh approx. every 60 second make Explorer almost useless as well as other programs!

    So you go the rename a file or folder or open the context menu and bling it reverts or closes.

    I found the problem and solution!

    There problem:
    Windows 10 has auto-magickly started syncing your theme. The theme is sending/receiving a refresh "heartbeat'.

    The Solution:
    Right click, select 'Personalize'
    Select 'Themes' in root window
    Select 'Theme Settings' in main window
    Select the 'Windows Ten' or your theme preference

    Go back to 'Settings' main window
    Select 'Accounts'
    Select 'Sync your settings' in the window root
    Under "Individual sync settings"
    Turn off 'Theme'
    Or you can just stop the sync all together.

    Test and pat self on back. Enjoy the feeling of accomplishment!

    Hey Guys,

    I'm having a problem with my Windows 10 Home edition, after last updates.
    It seems that whenever i insert my USB memory, it's one Corsair Voyager for USB 3.0, the icons from tha taskbar start to flash.
    Also, in My Computer, the icon for Voyager is refreshing always. The problem stops after removing the USB memory.

    I tested the memory on other PC with no similar problems.
    I tested another memory on my PC without any problems.
    I don't know what else I coulld do. I updated al USB memory drivers, nothing happens...
    I tried the memory on each USB port that I have, 2.0 or 3.0 and nothing.
    I tested an external harddrive on the USB 3.0 ports, works perfectly.

    Please advise. It drives me mad.

    A Simple Solution: I "showed" the toolbar at the top of windows explorer and so far that seems to help.

    To stop open folder in Windows 10 from automatically scrolling back to the top of the page:

    Push the "windows" key and "I" on your keyboard. Windows Settings should pop up.

    Go to "Personalization" and select it. Go to "Colors" on the Left side of the screen and select it.

    On the right side of the screen UNCHECK "Automatically Pick An Accent Color From My Background"

    This should stop your open folder from automatically scrolling back to the top of the page.

    Good Day.

    why, when I go into File Explorer it often refreshes everything?
    Says "working on it" and can take several minutes.
    It is like it is building indexes all over again or something.
    Usually happens first time after boot up, but sometimes can happen even if I have been working on the Surface Pro 2017 for quite a time.

    Hello everybody. I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 48 hours ago and have been driven ABSOLUTELY MAD by the auto-refresh feature. All my desktop icons that I have arranged in groups refresh to some kind of default down the left side of the desktop every minute without fail. I've tried the suggested turn off auto colour application in personalization but it hasn't worked. Has anybody got any other brilliant ideas before I throw my laptop out the window into the garden!
    This was the answer for me: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...?auth=1&page=4

    Uninstall Windows Media Player (use VLC anyway) and it works...

    Start >> Add or remove programs > Windows Media Player > Uninstall

    Worked a charm for me - I was almost going to through it in too
