  1. Thank you so very much to everyone who replied. Your replies were almost all very excellent, and would have been helpful, except that I finally figured out that I had a programming error. I was continually creating the file during the macro. So even though M.E. was actually deleting the file, it kept appearing. I should have realized that Insight Software, being such amazing engineers, would have tested M.E. thoroughly. I should have had more trust. Thanks again to all. I will try to delete this thread, if possible, to avoid confusion to others.
  2. I realize that I'm running a very old version (I run a poor registered charity), but it works great and is one of my top two apps (the other is Ethervane Echo, which saves and restores the clipboard). When I run the following macro to save my editing and show my edited website in Firefox, the macro fails to delete file "files-are-okay.txt" with no error message. All the other commands work perfectly. Does this ring a bell with anyone? Is this a known bug, and what version was it fixed in? Environment: HP laptop, Windows 10 Home The macro: <LOCK PLAYER Wait="FALSE"/> <TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<ALT>fl"/> <DELAY Flags="\x12" Time="1000"/> <DELETE FILE/FILES Path="C:\\Web\\n1\\generated\\files-are-okay.txt" Progress="FALSE" Recurse="FALSE" Permanent="TRUE"/> <DELAY Flags="\x12" Time="250"/> <WINDOW ACTIVATE Title="Mozilla Firefox" Exact_Match="FALSE" Wildcards="FALSE" _IGNORE="0x0006"/> <WAIT FOR WINDOW TITLE Title="Mozilla Firefox" Partial="TRUE" Wildcards="FALSE" Indefinite="FALSE" Hours="0" Minutes="0" Seconds="10"/> <TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<CONTROL>4"/> <DELAY Flags="\x12" Time="500"/> <TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<CONTROL><F5>" _COMMENT="Use <CONTROL><F5> to refresh browser fully."/> <DELAY Flags="\x12" Time="500"/> <TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<HOME>" _ENABLED="FALSE"/> <UNLOCK PLAYER/>
