Saving Documents


I'm trying to re-edit/work my Manuscripts and as I'm finishing for the day I go to save the document and it pops up with a screen requiring a new name...so I type in the Name and add a capitalized letter at the end ...when I try to delet the old version it say's it's still open and won't delete....I go in try to close the document and then delete it and the smae window pops up that it's still open...now I have 6 documents with the same story just with different phrases of the editing process ....if this keeps up I'll have something like 200 copies of the manuscript ....

How do I close a document that is closed but the computer is claiming its open....I don't need all these extra copies...

Sorry if I sound enapt but this has got me totally stumped...I don't know why its doing this or how to stop it.

Re:


Check the system tray (icons by the clock) to see if the program is running there, right-click and end it or go through the 'Task Manager' and close tabs there.

Also, try,..... 'Save as..' option, then try to delete the older ones.

Re: Saving Documents


Okay I got one deleted but it was the one I 'saved as'..the original is still there and won't let me delete it...The only thing in the Task manager is Runboard (where I'm in here)...

I have Windows 7

The following is the info on my computer (the specs that I save from the box when we got it:

AMD Athlon IIX2 235e Dual-core Processor
6GB DDR2 Memory
750 GB Hard Drive
DVD +-RW Super multi format Dual LayerNVIDIA GeForce 6150SE Integrated
10/100 Mbps Ethernet LAN
Multi-in-One Digital Media Reader

In-stalled (via Factory--on this I only got the first two...the rest are missing on the paper I took off the box--there's more I just don't remember what they are)

Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium

Re:


You could force a delete by holding down the Shift Key and then press Delete or it may be the Ctrl key instead of shift if you using Windows 7.

You can also do it from a command prompt, here's how....

Click on the \"Start\" button in the lower left corner of the screen and select \"Run.\"


Type \"cmd\" into the run dialog box to open a new command-line interface window.


Find the exact path of the file you want to delete and make note of it.


Type \"del c:\\path\" into the command-line interface, replacing \"c:\\path\" with the exact file path of the file you want to delete.

If your file is within a folder, it will be easier to locate. Right-Click on the folder where the file is saved and select 'Explore' this will then show the path in the address bar. All you have to do then is to addon the file name you wish to delete.

If you can't see the address bar then goto the folders File Menu, select...View / Toolbars and select.

Press the \"Enter\" key to confirm the delete command. Windows will now automatically delete the specified file, as long as it exists at the given location.
