    Unable to delete the screenshot file in Mac

    I just took a screenshot of the movie which I was watching in my Mac and now when I try to delete the file from the desktop it just gives the error message as “The item <filename> can’t be moved to the trash because it can’t be deleted” What does it mean? Why I am not able to delete the file? Please someone help me to resolve this problem.
