Bridge renaming files error - The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another

Hi,

 

New user to Bridge.  I'm trying to manually rename a billion videos of my kids but periodically get the error listed.

 

"The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process."

 

I am almost 99% sure it's because the video is being "previewed", i.e., still running on the Preview pane, while I try to rename the file.  I say that because if the video is stopped, renaming works perfectly.  

 

Please tell me that's not the case!  Why even have a preview window if you can't do anything to the file while it's running??

 

Help!

 

Thank you,

Steve

This is normal, you can't rename open files pretty much anywhere on computers. Just close out of that file before you make changes.
