    Please recommend me software for changing these file properties.


    Hi people,

    I have asked a question on the official Microsoft community forum.

    I am linking to it here to make it more likely that I get the help that I need and that I get it sooner:

    You can change time stamps of a file with Attribute changer. Not familiar about changing Word properties...

    Update.. you can delete this data. Just go to File / Info / Inspect document, and then search for all and delete information

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply.

    I am not wanting to delete the info, I want to be able to change file info to whatever I feel like it being.

    I have tried to change my computer's name to be the same as another computer's name. But Windows says "The PC name is invalid."

    I wonder if anyone anyone here knows software that will expand the limits of what I can rename my computer to...


    UPDATE:
    I am also experiencing difficulty renaming my local Windows user account to be the same as another account that I have on a different computer system.

    Here on my personal computer there is a character limit... but the name of the account I have on the other system is larger than the limit that is stopping me here on my personal computer.

    Fellow people, please share software that will help me bypass that.

    Change Computer Name in Windows 10

    I have tried to change my computer's name to be the same as another computer's name. But Windows says "The PC name is invalid."
    Note you cannot use special characters in the name; limit 15 chars.
    PC names cannot consist entirely of numbers, nor can they contain spaces.

    But on the computers that I use at an organisation, the name of the computer has spaces in it
    It is also made of more than 15 chars.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...ains-sites-and
    - old document- perhaps you can find a later one.

    It refers to the 15 character limit. Perhaps there are cases when this doesn't apply or has been changed. I don't know.
