Hi there.

Every time I change a file icon PathFinder don't change it. Finder immediately shows the updated file icon but PathFinder keeps showing the old one until I close and restart PathFinder.
Is there a better way to refresh file icons?. Any shortcut?.

Thanks in advance.

    You can use the Touch command but it will the change the last modification date to today. This sometimes happens in Finder too (even after a download or extracting an app from a dmg) but if you don't want to fiddle with the modification date, just relaunch Path Finder.
