    I close PDF file, but cannot rename in Windows Explorer -- file in use error

    Dr DePhobia

      After viewing a file in Acropbat X Standard, I save and close the file (but leave Acrobat open).

       

      If i try to rename the file in Windows Explorer, it fails and reports this error:

       

           Cannot rename <filename>.pdf: The file is in use by the following program: Adobe Acrobat.

       

      The only way to release the lock is to close Acrobat.

       

      Any solutions? I frequently have several PDF files open at the same time and do not want to close the tool just to release one file lock.
