Clear Word properties contents


Recommended Posts

Within Word 2003, if you select File > Properties, you will see all metadata i.e. the user who created the file, how long theyve been amending it, when it was created etc etc. Is there anyway to clean that so nothing appears? Bit like if you download a MS document it never has any data.

There is a way.

Open the file for which you want to remove personal information.

Click on Save As.

Click on Tools menu at top.

Select Security Options.

Under Privacy Options, check "Remove personal informatin..."

Then Save.

It removes everything except the Title, which is not personal unless your name got in there somehow.
