That’s different. Relaunching Finder would be the same as relaunching the Windows explorer window. What’s being asked is how to you get a Finder window to reconsider the list of files it’s showing. That should never be needed, but sometimes it does seem slow to react to changes of files on a server.
I just found this page:
(you may have to answer a survey question to read the whole page)
On that page is shown this AppleScript, and a link to an app that uses that script:
tell application "Finder"
tell front window
update every item with necessity
I didn’t test it as a script, but I have the app installed. Can’t be sure if it’s doing anything. Here’s a discussion page, that includes a link to download the app:
One thing to note, you install the app by dragging it first to Applications, then command-dragging it to the Finder window tool bar area.
