OpenedFilesView displays the list of all opened files on your system. For each opened file, the handle value, read/write/delete access, file position, the process that opened the file etc. are displayed. You can also close one or more opened files, or terminate the processes that opened these files. This is particularly handy when you are trying to delete/move/open a file and Windows complains that the file is "locked".

Runs on:Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: Administrator rights
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract a folder of your choice. Launch OpenedFilesView.exe.
What's new?
  • Fixed OpenedFilesView to send the data to stdout when specifying an empty string (e.g.: OpenedFilesView.exe /scomma "").

It's a ~ GUI for openfiles.exe.
Nir Sofer gives us so many (to many?!)~ GUIs.

Great application! Sometimes I want to eject USB drives or delete directories and find that there are files open. (one of the big culprits is UltraEdit). This handy application allows me to close the handles and perform the operation.

Starting with v1.10, settings are now saved in the application folder.

Like the description suggests, I've used this software to help diagnose very weird, very unpleasant Windows problems where what's happening and why is totally mysterious. Helps with diagnosing files that won't open or delete, Windows claiming that the file is "in use," or even just to see what precisely Windows is doing.
