WinSCP Version 5.5.3 (Build 4214)

I upload (drag&drop) my file through WinSCP onto a cluster. I open the file and edit the file. I close out of the file. I try to open it again, and the error pops up:

The file 'such_and_such' is already opened in external editor (application) or is being uploaded.

Nothing else is open on my computer..[/img]

Description: This is the screenshot of the error message...

Did you check that the transfer queue is really empty?

You're right! They actually all show up in the transfer queue... Why does this happen? How do I make it so that any files that get updated, saved, or altered, get automatically changed without going into the queue with the Waiting.. Progress I would have to force it to start every time.

Maybe you disabled queue processing? See Commands > Queue > Process Queue.
