Find out which process is locking a file or folder in Windows

You can use the Resource Monitor for this which comes built-in with Windows 7, 8, 10 and 11! Open Resource Monitor, which can be found By searching for Resource Monitor or resmon.exe in the start menu, or As a button on the Performance tab in your Task Manager Go to the CPU tab Use the search field in the Associated Handles section See blue arrow in screen shot below When you’ve found the handle, you can identify the process by looking at the Image and/or PID column. You can then try to close the application as you normally would, or, if that’s not possible, just right-click the handle and kill the process directly from there. Easy peasy!

SharpLab Online Tool – Reveal what happens during compilation of C#

SharpLab is a .NET code playground that shows intermediate steps and results of code compilation. Some language features are thin wrappers on top of other features — e.g. using() becomes try/finally. SharpLab allows you to see the code as compiler sees it, and get a better understanding of .NET languages.

Recent versions include experimental support for running code, with some limitations.

My Ultimate PowerShell prompt with Oh My Posh and the Windows Terminal – Scott Hanselman’s Blog

I’ve long blogged about my love of setting up a nice terminal, getting the prompt just right, setting my colors, fonts, glyphs, and more. Here’s some of my posts.

I want to take a moment to update my pretty prompt post with a little more detail and a more complex PowerShell $PROFILE, due to some changes in Oh My Posh, PowerShell, and the Windows Terminal. I doubt that this post is perfect and I’m sure there’s stuff here that is a little extra. But I like it, and this post will serve as my “setting up a new machine” post until I get around to writing a script to do all this for me in one line.

I love my prompt.

EditorConfig settings – Visual Studio

You can add an EditorConfig file to your project or codebase to enforce consistent coding styles for everyone that works in the codebase. EditorConfig settings take precedence over global Visual Studio text editor settings. This means that you can tailor each codebase to use text editor settings that are specific to that project. You can still set your own personal editor preferences in the Visual Studio Options dialog box. Those settings apply whenever you’re working in a codebase without an .editorconfig file, or when the .editorconfig file doesn’t override a particular setting. An example of such a preference is indent style—tabs or spaces.
