    WHen I use the "show icon preview" option on my desktop it rarely works for newly placed images or files. It shows a default icon for that file type until i open view options, uncheck "Show Icon Preview" and then REcheck the box.

    Is there a way to speed up how often my desktop refreshes so my icon preview always works?

    The same the often happens with my downloads stack, but not all the time.
    It's quite annoying when all of a sudden I don't get previews of new files :(
