"Reload" could also work, as that's also a very common and recognizable term.

This is something I've recently suggested myself, so having this happen would be a small change but still a good change.

Furthermore this'll make it consistent with Plasma's Folder View's terminology for "Refresh Desktop".

That is a good point but if you call it "Reload" you might as well proceed to also replace every instance of "Refresh" in Plasma and KApps with "Reload" for consistency.

This revision was automatically updated to reflect the committed changes.

All right, "Refresh" it is, then!

Refresh is fine, Reload could be irritating for applications that don't load anything, but still know the user could be faced with a view state that needs redrawing, e.g. when cleaning corruption caused by non-integer scale factors.
