Microsoft Windows Font File in Use

I could not delete a TrueType font file, BlackFlowersBlossom.ttf, from the folder in which it was located, which was a folder beneath the user's Documents directory on her Microsoft Windows 10 system. If I attempted to delete it, a "File in Use" window opened with the message "The action can't be completed because the file is open in System."

Font - the file is open in 

With other fonts beneath her Documents folder I was able to then open Fonts from the Control Panel, which you can get to in Microsoft Windows 10 by typing fonts in the Cortana "Ask me anything" field at the bottom, left hand corner of the screen, then selecting Fonts Control Panel and then selecting the font and deleting it from the Fonts Control Panel. Once it was deleted from the Fonts area of the Control Panel, I could then delete the .ttf file from the user directory after rebooting the system.
