IObit Unlocker unlocks files and folders that Windows won't let you delete because they're "locked" or "open in another program." Free, fast, and lightweight, IObit Unlocker unlocks files and folders from Windows context menus, by drag and drop, or by browsing and adding. With a small, dialog-style interface and few options, it's extremely easy to use but nevertheless boasts a user's manual and optional tool tips.

Pros

Easy access: IObit Unlocker automatically integrates with shell menus in Windows. Right-clicking any file or folder and selecting IObit Unlocker quickly does the job. The compact drag-and-drop interface offers more options for selecting items to unlock and also accesses the Languages menu, User Manual, and other resources.

Five unlock options: IObit Unlocker offers five actions: Unlock, Unlock & Delete, Unlock & Rename, Unlock & Move, and Unlock & Copy.

Forced Mode: If IObit Unlocker's standard modes can't unlock a file or folder, Forced Mode often does the job. Beware: Forced Mode terminates all related processes.

Languages: Different interface languages are among IObit Unlocker's program options.

Cons

Few options: While having comparatively few options isn't always a bad thing in software, IObit Unlocker could use more than it has. For example, you might prefer to skip context menu integration.

Bottom Line

Being unable to delete a file or folder (or uninstall an app) can be a frustrating experience, especially when closing the item doesn't work. With IObit Unlocker on the context menu, you won't have time to be annoyed.
