Windows: Cannot delete file: Access is denied

Ever had such an annoying message given by Windows: Cannot delete
file: Access is denied. There has been a sharing violation. The source
or destination file may be in use or the file is in use by another
program or user. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and
that the file is not currently in use. Long Path Tool is the solution.

right-click of the mouse on a file or folder to get rid of error
