Folder In Use Fix

#1243

Windows 8 and 8.1 annoying message when trying to move or delete a folder.

This is cause by Windows Explorer’s thumbnail view it keeps the "Thumbs.db" file open. My simple way to fix this is this tweak to the registry, save this code in notepad with .reg extension then just double click it

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer]
"DisableThumbsDBOnNetworkFolders"=dword:00000001
Enjoy :-h
