Andrew, When I tried that, my system said that "handle *.pdf" is not recognized as a command.

Gillian: I suspect that you're just seeing a default error message, and that the file might NOT actually be in use by another app... But you can find out for sure by using either Handle or Process Explorer: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/ProcessesAndThreads/Proces sExplorer.mspx http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/utilities/handle.mspx Handle is a command-line program; the command to find the process that has mypdf.pdf open is simply "handle mypdf". If you're not comfortable with the DOS command line, Process Explorer is a GUI tool. After installing it, ctrl-F will open a search box into which you can type "mypdf". -Andrew === Andrew Warren - awarren at synaptics.com === Synaptics, Inc - Santa Clara, CA
