How to see checked out file

SharePoint Asked by Dingo on September 2, 2020

I am using SP Online. I am a site owner but I could not see a checked-out file (by another user). Checked out files are invisible to other users in my site. How can I see this checked-out file and the creator (of file) name?

Why am I asking this? I am trying to delete a folder and it wouldn’t let me delete and saying this (see picture). It doesn’t say who has the file checked-out.

Thanks in advance!

An administrator can see all the checked files by going into the Document Library settings page.

In your document library, do the following:

  1. Settings - Document Library Settings
  2. Under Permissions and Management click on Manage checked out files
  3. This will list all the check out files and if you choose to you can take ownership and check them back in

and also try to Add the Checked out column into your view. simply go to the view edit setting, add column Checked Out To into your view.

It will show all users to whom any document is checked out.
