Well, everytime I goto the desktop of my computer, I just right click on the empty location of my desktop and then clcik the Refresh Button, And its been a hundreds of times in a day,,, I think its just speed up My Computer a little bit, And I seldomly press F5 keys for refreshing my computer as I love to work from mouse and I feel its handy to refresh our computer through Mouse instead of Keyboard. So, How oftenly you REFRESH your Computer my friend??? And-- Do you Use the Keyboard F5 Key to Refresh or just use Mouse Clicks to Refresh your Computer. Share your thoughts... Cheers!!!

I always use F5 to refresh my computer when it run slowly. My computer sometimes has virus. I very afraid of virus. Yesterday tonight, I scanned my computer, I saw about 100 virus.

that accomplishes nothing, its just refreshing your desktop icons. like if you had a window open of your desktop, and you moved something into it, you may need to refresh your desktop for it to display, thats all that does.

I don't refresh my desktop. Basically I have not much file on my system and I have a good processor as well as a higher ram. So, its quite fast. Well, I really don't know it makes the computer faster since I am not really good with computers. But basically if it works for you then why not.

It is rare that I refresh the display. On odd occassions it serves a purpose if an overlay of an image remains, but I see little point in doing it otherwise.

I seldom do refresh, only I guest when I see traces of uncleared window or my desktop icons is not right, but if ever, I use my mouse more than the F5. I have use a simple screen saver (blank screen) and set it to 3 minutes of inactivity, so when I wake up my desktop, it automatically refresh it.

I do not refresh my desktop because it would slow down my system. Refreshing your desktop adds CPU usage therefore slowing things down. Here's my reference: http://extratopics.com and type "desktop refresh" on the search box to see my point.

I do not refresh my Desktop. It slows things down. Try opening the Task Manager and try to refresh repeatedly (or F5 to repeat faster). You will notice a spike in the CPU Usage. Therefore, it makes the system more busy. I found this article on the internet, check this out: http://extratopics.com and search for "desktop refresh" on the search box.

i only refresh my computer if i found running slow. if the mouse is not enough to refresh it i will use F5. I refresh seldom specially if my computer run fast. lesser file inside my computer that is why it runs fast anytime and only me used the connection. I maximized the connection.

No, mnsrw123, I don't use the refresh too often. Sometimes I do if the page didn't load or if there is some breaking news and I want to refresh. I love to refresh when it's necessary, but I don't use it so much. I love the refresh when I'm visiting certain websites. Pablo

I only do it when the computer is running slowly, should I be doing it more often? I really don't know much about these things.

I don't think I can "refresh" my computer. It's a Mac, and I don't even see that option. What is the actual point of refreshing your computer?

I only refresh my computer about once or twice a day, only when I remember to. I don't think it is neccessary to do often, but that is just my opinion. I know when I am reading my emails I don't have to refresh it because the new ones just come up anyways. I use the F5 key which I never knew about until a few months ago, when my nephew told me about it. Whne it comes to the computer I am not all that smart so there is a lot of things I don;t know about and I rely on others, like my nephew or mylot members, to learn new things.

refresh just changes the glowing of pixels and it does not effect system

I haven't done that lately. I always forgot. I used to do that a lot before, but I don't know why I forget lately. And since you reminded me, thanks... I will do that often because somebody told me it's good for the computer. thanks again.
