    I have a downloaded application file on my desktop that whenever i try to delete it says "The operation can’t be completed because the item “sixtyforce” is in use." It was an N64 emulator. What can i do to force delete this? or make it stop being used? Thanks :apple:

    Just log out and log back in then delete it or look for it running in Activity Monitor and end the process then delete.

    If you can't find it and it didn't work just logging in and back out just restart and then you should be able to delete it.
