Empty trash without Preview blocking a file
Authored by: leamanc on Jan 16, '09 11:02:50AM

This was a lot bigger problem back in the classic Mac OS days, basically applicable to any application and any file it had opened.

I only notice it with Preview (as noted in the hint), QuickTime Player (as noted above) and TextEdit.

It's usually not a big deal for me to cmd-tab over to the offending app, cmd-q, empty trash and go about my business.
