    Remove file details


    Hey, I was wondering if I can remove the "Last Printed" detail from file properties->details somehow. Managed to remove all other details but this, and I need to make a clean file with the information inside
    Is there any way I can do this?

    You should be able to do it like this:

    Click image for larger version

    Notice the two selection buttons on the editing window, choose the lower one, then go in and remove the detail you need to - If you can't - It may be related to your Printer, and there may be a Setting in your Printer Properties to remove that.

    I just checked one of my documents, and I also cannot remove that detail. I think that particular detail be be permanent for certain types of Document files.

    Why kind of file is it which you are trying to apply this to?

    Give me a few minutes to look this up, see if there is a way to remove it.

    I found this link:

    MS Word - "Last Printed" document property is not always - Microsoft Community

    If you don't save the document after printing, then the field update is not recorded. If you think about it, how could it be?
    If you have "Update fields" checked on the Print tab of Tools | Options, then you'll be prompted to save the document when you close it after printing. It's important to keep this in mind in case the document contains a SaveDate field that you don't want updated.
    I'll keep looking.

    Ok - Read this too - It's Metadata, so there should be a way to get rid of it. The method here removes ALL details:
