  • If the Explorer window is the active window then you need only press <F5>. 

    (On some 'special function' keyboards you may first need to press an 'F' key or 'Mode' key to restore normal functionality to the keyboard Function keys.)

  • As Techwrighter mentioned, F5 can help refresh a window and it is a default setting on many programs in cluding third party programs.
