"The process cannot access the file because it is being used by other process" error while saving a text file after putthing some text

Open Application
Copy text
Close Application
Open Application with another text file
Paste text
Send Hot Keys ctrl+s

Use a kill process before opening the file and mention the process name as “Notepad”

Or close the file and try with the process again

To be precise over here

KILL PROCESS
Open Application
Copy text
Close Application
KILL PROCESS
Open Application with another text file
Paste text
Send Hot Keys ctrl+s

Hi @amitg,
Can you show your workflow? I think there might be some activities still occupying the file during action you perform.

Instead of open application and copy text u can use
Read Text File Activity (if it is a text file) Under System -> File
and use the copied text and paste in the other notepad file.

Hi @Pablito did you get my issue?

I see your workflow but one thing is not right here. In open application scope you need to indicate what kind of application would you like to open and then you need to perform the other activities/action.
