How Can I Force A File Closed Thats Open By Another Program RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to close an open file.   Does anyone know how to do this?   Its not showing up in task manager cause its not an executable and I dont know what program is opening the file

    Right now I have to manually close it.

    Control panel --> Administrative Tools --> Computer Management --> Shared Folders --> Open Files
    I find it in the list and right click on it to close it.

    How can i do this problematically?

    or is there a way to monitor the file to see what program is opening it?
