Windows 11 22H2 Feature 'File Locksmith' Allows Users To Delete Files In Use

Windows uses File Explorer to work with files, but its functionality is limited, for example, it doesn't allow users to delete files that are currently in use by other programs since that would often crash the said program.

The new Windows 11 22H2 feature called 'File Locksmith' will tell users why they cannot currently delete a file and what program is using it. The option can be found in the file's context menu.

The processes that are keeping the file busy can be ended using PowerToys' Expander View.
