Please try to right-click on the TD icon in the notifications area (system tray) and choose "sync" or "reload" or "home" from this menu.

If this won't help, try to install this version of our Windows app: https://d2dq6e731uoz0t.cloudfront.net/5023a6d6c92501bdfb0e00969703a767/as/Todoist_for_Windows.exe

I just downloaded the desktop version 2 days ago.

And, yes, those suggested steps were performed before having to close the application, then reopening it and login back in. Then is when it finally refreshed properly.

Since were on the subject.... Please provide details on what each of the suggestions you provided.

What do each of the below perform when selected, and how do they differ from one another.

Sync Do?

Reload Do?

Home Do?

Small Arrowed Circle in Desktop Version (lower right)

The version I've posted above it not published yet, it's an unreleased update so it may help solve this issue as I can't reproduce it on it.

As for the differences in these functions:
- Sync - forces a re-synchronization of all data
- Reload - simply reloads the current view, just as the reload button in a browser
- Home - changes the view to show the "start page" which by default is "overdue, 7 days", but can be configured in Todoist's Settings.

The circular arrow in the lower-right corner does the same as the "Sync" option.

Best regards,
