Windows 7: Media Player Classic - close file after playback?

Media Player Classic - close file after playback?

I can't figure out how to get MPC to close the file after playback. For instance, if I want to delete or move the file, I can't do it unless I close MPC or select File>Close. From what I read, there's an option in MPC to automatically close the file when playback stops, but I can't find the option. Can anyone help?

There is an option in the view menu => options => playback => after playback => close

Perfect! That's what I was looking for. Thank you!

EDIT - works great when the file is allowed to play to the end of the file on it's own, but if I hit stop before playback is complete, it doesn't close, leaving me with the same issue.

Is there a way to have MPC close the file when I hit stop? That would make sense to have an option like that in there. Otherwise I still have to manually close it after I hit stop which is a pain. Many other media players do that - in fact most players I've tried do not keep the file locked once you hit stop.
