    Default Can't change Foder's name?

    Hi,

    How come I can't change a folder containing tiffs and the computer tells to quit the application uisng the file before I can change it.

    I have already quit Photoshop leh. Still can't change the name. I have to restart the PC to be able to do this. There should be an easier way to do it?

    Thanks.

    i kenna before.. and i dun use P2P..

    I can create new folder (as a temp) rename, move files in/out and delete... but windows will tell me it's in use and cannot delete.

    Happens to folders and files. Same as above, have to reset to delete.

    that depends leh, if a software which you used to open a file inside is not properly shut down. for eg, u use a picture viewer, then the picture viewer when you off, it doesn't actually close all the files, you will have this problem.

    it may show no programs running when u click Ctrl-Alt-Del, but the program is resident in the memory. and only when you reset, the memory get purged so the file gets freed.

    Boot to command prompt safe mode.
    Then delete the directory.

    Ensure you don't have a command prompt open that's pointing to that directory.

    Alternatively, end-task explorer.exe in task manager, try again. If not, I'd normally go command prompt and issue the commands.
