When is a locked file not locked?

Brass Contributor

Power Automate errors out when it tries to update SharePoint properties on a file that is locked for editing.

If you clicked a link to a SharePoint file and you weren't completely logged in to Office365, would SharePoint still see the file as "locked for editing?" I am thinking about situations where you might still have an old browser window open to O365 but your login session had timed out.


Thank you,

Does anyone have experience with sleeping tabs in a web browser causing SharePoint to release the lock on the document in the tab?
