RefreshWindows is a simple, faceless application to refresh the contents of all open Finder windows. Also refreshes more than one level down, when using expanded folders in list view. I got sick of creating new folders, opening and closing windows, and changing views to update window contents, especially for network volumes. 10.4 has improvements over previous OSes, but still lacking. If this was a windows application it would be called ``F5key''.
