The Windows 11 Upgrade Provides Consumers more Control over How Files Are Used.

While File Explorer will finally get tabs in the next major 2022 update, PowerToys is also bringing in a beneficial update to check what's utilizing your files and slowing down your PC.

PowerToys is an app with a variety of utilities to assist better your PC or laptop, such as putting a spotlight on your mouse to make it easier to locate, or adding some extra capabilities to File Explorer, which is where this latest update comes in.

According to Windows Latest, the next PowerToys update will allow you to right-click and choose an option from the context menu to determine which programs are consuming the file in question.

This program, called 'File Locksmith,' might be quite beneficial if you've had instances when some files have been picked and have slowed down your PC for an extended length of time.
