Gillian: Your system can't find handle.exe. You can remedy that problem by changing to the directory into which you copied handle.exe, or by adding that directory to your PATH environment variable... Or you can avoid the command-line altogether by downloading Process Explorer. If you decide to use Handle, note that wildcard characters are neither necessary nor desired: The command to find all open PDFs is "handle .pdf" or just "handle pdf", not "handle *.pdf". -Andrew === Andrew Warren - awarren at synaptics.com === Synaptics, Inc - Santa Clara, CA
