I saved the file from a browser, but the saved file name is so long I can neither open it nor delete it - basically it's stuck. It reads, "Can't access this folder. Path is too long."

can you currently locate the folder or disk where the file is currently saved? if yes download a small app called "unlocker" install it and use to rename your doc to something shorter.

hope this helps?
