How do I refresh ranger file manager? It automatically refreshes if a file is changed/edited/created/removed inside current directory, but I want to be able to force it to do so. How would I do that?


See help ?, k(eybindings):

Keybindings in `browser'
       R reload_cwd

Just press R.

  • This removes my git info from statusline at the bottom of ranger. What does reload_cwd actually do? reload current working directory? Then why does it removes my git info? – klaus May 29 '18 at 12:29
  • @EnanAjmain IMO it does what you asked - you can find that with help/commands: :reload_cwd Reload the current working directory. – laktak May 29 '18 at 14:15
  • Are you using the latest ranger (master)? You can report bugs here: github.com/ranger/ranger – laktak May 29 '18 at 14:21
