Clearing your Sharepoint Designer Cache - A file appear to be checked out, but it doesn't

So you are just trying to edit a page that should be checked out for editing, and the file appears to be already checked out, but it’s not checked out indeed. This is caused by the caching of SharePoint Designer.

To clear the SharePoint Designer cache, go to this location : "C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache", and delete all files right there.

That’s it :)
