IDEA: Add 'retry' option to various Windows error messages
« on: July 28, 2007, 07:26:23 PM »
My hunch is that this idea is impossible, or at very least difficult, to implement.

I have always been frustrated when I try to move / rename  a file / folder and get a Windows error message…

Can't [do the operation] because another application is using the file / folder.

At this point the only option is to click OK, which cancels the request. Instead, I'd like to be able to close the offending application, and then hit 'retry' so that Windows can complete the operation.

This is a function that seems to have half made it into the operating system, but why isn't retry available on all dialogues?

Anyone even know where to begin with adding the 'missing button'!
