Could Not Save or Edit on a Remote Machine with Notepad

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I want to save and edit files on a remote machine using Notepad. I have granted the security permissions and access privileges in the folder. However, when I tried to edit or save, the following error occurred: “Please check whether if this file is opened in another program.” I have tried to find solutions but failed to fix it. I really need help!

Could Not Save or Edit on a Remote Machine with Notepad


That is an error occurring because the same file that you are editing on the remote machine is still opened on the local machine, and therefore you cannot be able to edit it, nor can you be able to save it. So you will need to make sure that the following is done:

  • Close the file that you want to edit on the local machine first.
  • Thereafter you can be able to edit and save using the remote machine.
  • You will also need to make sure that no other user has opened that document for you will be denied permission to edit and save it in that case.

Or you can still save the same file with a different file name on the remote computer using the 'save as' option and continue working on it without having to close it on the local machine.
