The metadata of the files corresponds to the information that allows us to know the details of the files in question, especially if they are mainly photographs or videos since these data will enable us to know the values used by the camera during capture and the video quality at which it was recorded.
On the Internet, we can find a large number of applications that allow us not only to access the metadata of the files but also allow us to modify and even delete them. With Windows 10, these types of applications are not necessary. Below we show you how the remove metadata from videos in Windows 10.
