    information   Information
    The properties of some files (ex: music, images, videos, etc...) can contain details (metadata) that tell a lot about the file and possibly personal information. While property details will vary depending on the file type, it can include information (values) like title, subject, rating, tags, categories, authors, album, genre, and much more.

    These file property details (metadata) can be seen in the details pane in File Explorer and infotips (pop-up descriptions).

    You can also search by file properties in the File Explorer search box.

    This tutorial will show you how to add, change, and remove property details for files in Windows 10.
