Remove File Name (metadata)

2 posts in this topic

Hi, I want to have my pdfs available for download online -  and want to remove the FILE NAME.

If I click FILE - PROPERTIES - DESCRIPTION, I can change everything apart from my file name which names me personally.


Would really appreciate any help on removing / changing the info there.

Hey Nina, 


Thanks for reaching out. What platform will you be sharing your files from?


In terms of File name, are you referring to the item I have boxed in red?

I have done a few tests to see if the file name actually shows up when I upload it online.


I uploaded the file to Google Drive. I shared the link and opened it with another account. The file name doesn't show, but it does show that I am the owner:

I also downloaded it onto my Guest Account. The download name and the files -> properties -> description name doesn't display the original file name.

Let me know if this helps!
