When multiple people are using shared files at the same time on a Windows file server, the server’s administrator often has to force-quit the files. This usually happens when desktop software isn’t working right, when a user logs off wrong, or when a user opens a file but forgets to close it (went home, on vacation, etc.). In each of these cases, the file is still open (and locked) in the shared network folder, and other users can’t change it. Depending on the program, when another user tries to open a locked file, they may see this message: “The document filename is locked for editing by another user.” Go here to see a copy of his document that can only be read.
Find Out Who Has a File Open (May 2002, http://www.winnetmag.com, InstantDoc ID 24503) was an interesting Reader to Reader article. I do know a faster way to find out who has a file open, though. Both Windows NT and Windows 9x can work with the way I do things.
To view PDF files online, you need Adobe Reader and a web browser like Internet Explorer. This means that when you download a PDF file, the browser will open Adobe Reader for you. You won’t have to do this separately. If you don’t want to use a browser, you can download the file and open it in Adobe Reader when you’re not connected to the internet.
Google Chrome: At the moment, our website does not work with Chrome’s built-in PDF reader. Use a different browser or turn off Chrome PDF Reader and choose a different PDF reader to see forms. To turn off the built-in viewer, please see Chrome’s most recent “PDF viewer” Help article.
