    Trash Question
    Hi,

    I have a question concerning the trash, I placed something in their earlier, a pdf, file and now when I want to go empty the trash it won't let me. A message comes up saying the operation could not be completed because the file is in use, which it is not.

    Anyone know what to do?

    Thanks for answering.
    Actually all I did was move it to the downloads folder, then move it back to the trash.
