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

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:

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".
