If you see the above pop-up message when trying to save a file in Notepad++, the reason is it is open with some other application like MS Word, Excel, or you are running a program (Java, Python, C# any code) that is still running and has acquired a lock on this file which is not released.
1) Make sure you close the file open in some other program such as MS Excel and now try to save the file.
2) Try to stop the execution of your programming code that has locked this file.
3) If nothing works Copy-Paste the file content in a new tab and save a new copy, restart your system and the lock should be released.
