Trouble with DELETE


Honorable Member
WHY is it that when I try to delete a file or folder it won't delete because
"it is open in another program".

It is not, BUT it has been. OR it is now open in Windows Explorer in that I am looking at the file list.

This especially happens because when the file THUMBS is present, but will happen even if it is not.

If I close and reopen WE I can then delete it (sometimes).

Is this the 11th bug to list against the infamous WE?????

sometimes that works sometimes it doesn't.
usually it doesn't when there is a thumbs file since I can't delete the thumbs file.
