Ever tried to delete a file that is in use and wished that Windows Explorer would tell you which application has the file open?

Have you noticed that if the file is open in Word or Excel, you are told which application has locked the file?

It turns out that you can notify Windows Explorer about the files you are using - this capability isn’t limited to the Office applications.

Check out “Notifying Windows Explorer about files in use”, an article by Lukasz Swiatkowski on the CodeProject.
