Thread: Missing shortcut for 'Refresh Desktop' in Plasma 5 Folder View

    Default Missing shortcut for 'Refresh Desktop' in Plasma 5 Folder View

    Hi, I am missing the shortcut for 'Refresh Desktop' in Folder View settings for Plasma 5. The issue is shown in the link (http://imgur.com/a/ZotDd). I looked for the 'Refresh Desktop' shortcut settings in System Settings > Shortcuts> Standard Shortcuts and in Global Shortcuts but couldn't find one. KDE 4 and previous versions had F5 as shortcut for 'Refresh Desktop'. Is there a way I can assign F5 as a shortcut for 'Refresh Desktop' ?

    Apparently that's not possible, not even in the latest Plasma 5.10.2.
    Feel free to file a bug report at http://bugs.kde.org/ (component plasmashell->folderview) if there isn't one already.

    But why do you need it in the first place?
    The folderview should refresh automatically if the contents of the folder changes.

    Once in a while, when I cut a file from the desktop and paste it in another folder, the icon for the file is still shown on the desktop. I have to refresh the desktop in order for the icon to disappear. KDE 4 had F5 for 'Refresh Desktop' so I was surprised that this shortcut is missing.
