If you're going to distribute your PowerPoint slide show to the public, you may not want proprietary information about your company's inner workings associated with the presentation. You can strip out the metadata saved with the file with just a few clicks. Go up to the File tab, and it defaults to Info. In the middle we see Prepare for Sharing. And it does remind you, Before sharing this file be aware that it contains document properties and authors name. So we'll click on the Check for Issues button, and Inspect the Document for hidden properties and personal information. There's a whole list of things that the document inspector looks for.
The ones that we're most concerned about right now, are Comments and Annotations, and Document Properties and Personal Information. But we'll go ahead and check off everything. And then I'll click the Inspect button at the bottom. It did find that our document has Properties and Author information. So I'll go ahead and Remove All. When I am done, I'll go ahead and re-inspect it. And it didn't find anything at all this time. So I'll click Close. Because companies seek to protect their intellectual property rights, they prefer not to release information that has employee names, file structure, and dates associated with it. Inspecting the document before sharing it with others, respects the privacy of the document's creator.
