Windows 10 - delete files

Today, we'll talk about how to Windows 10 delete files, because despite the fact that this topic may seem quite a lot of PC users is very simple and not worth their attention, I just want to clarify... Here we are talking it will not go about simply deleting files that any of you can do by hovering the mouse over a file that is not needed by right-clicking on it and selecting "Delete" from the context menu. Here we are going to talk about the situation in which you are trying to delete the file in the above-described way, and you have nothing to do with this. You try again, but for some reason, the system blocks you again and reports that "...the file is being used...".

Perhaps the smartest users will decide to reboot the Windows 10 operating system and from a part, they will be right, because in some cases, a reboot will disable the bulk of the workflows, which will allow uninhibited removal of a particular file, but this will only happen in 30-40% of the total number of attempts, in all the remaining percentages, you will again see the error - blocking your action by the system itself.

If the usual way to delete a file does not help you, then let's perform this procedure using the window with the name "Task Manager". The uniqueness of the "Task Manager" lies in the fact that this is a system application that can stop any process that takes place in the system. Thus, when trying to delete an example of a Word document and seeing the error message, you go to the "Device Manager", find the process itself "Microsoft Word", right click on it, which will bring up a context menu where you click again on the item "Remove the task" (you can also use the "Delete task" button, which is located in the lower right corner of the monitor screen).

Please note that in order to perform this procedure, you must have the "Processes" tab in the "Task Manager" and you probably need to know to which process the file that you are trying to delete is related.

If the system version of deleting the file did not help you, even if you used the "Task Manager", then in this case we recommend using third-party software, which has a more powerful kernel with a small but quite powerful number of features. Below we will talk about the program "Unlocker".

Unlocker's uniqueness lies in the fact that the program itself is so small that it does not take up much space on the PC hard disk and has absolutely no advertising. In addition, the software is distributed free of charge and has the support of the Russian language. Thus, you will need to download Unlocker from the official site, after which, to install it and run the software. It is possible to launch the program either via the "Shortcut" on the "Desktop" or via the one-shift item that will be in the context menu that appears when you right-click on a specific file. In the program window, you need to select the "Delete" item in a small menu with the name "No Action" and will click on the "Ok" button, everything else, for you will make software that will stop any process in the system and will delete the file.

Thus, in Windows 10, deleting files is possible even those that are not simple and are constantly used by many-sided applications about the work of which many users do not even guess.
