This is very likely not what you are after, but I post it anyway (at least for your amusement). This is how this Noob would go about trying to refresh desktop icons:

ControlSend("Program Manager", "", 1, "{F5}")

Have a look in some of the "hiddden folder" threads I think i saw something to refresh all the files...

ok, what i really meant was can i use the _SendMessage command to rebuild the icon cache?

As I often find F5 doesnt refresh the image or text in comments of a shortcut if theyve changed.
