This is Vi Adkins from ForemostResumes.com. I have a blank Word document, and although nothing has been written in the document yet there is still some meta data that I would want to be removed before I emailed this document to someone else. I'm going to show you how to be sure that all meta data is stripped out of a Word document. Meta data includes things like comments or document properties. Go to the File tab in the upper left hand corner and click on it. In the File tab window, be sure that Info is selected on the left hand side. Notice in the document properties on the right side that I am listed as the document's Author, Vivian Adkins, CPRW. Microsoft Word 2010 has automatically placed my name as the Author of this document. I am now going to remove this information from this document. Go to the Check for Issues button, and in the drop down, contextual menu select Inspect Document. You may be asked to save the file. The Document Inspector dialogue box opens and you have a choice as to whether you want to inspect this document for any of the different categories of meta data. I want to inspect for all of them so I click on the Inspect button, and it's going to take a few seconds to look for any meta data. The inspection has found Document Properties and Personal Information are in the document. Select Remove All and all meta data / information has been removed from the document. Over on the right side you can see that my name has been removed from the document as the Author. I always reinspect the document though it's probably not necessary. Then I close the Inspect Document window. At this point, be sure to save the document so that the meta data removal is retained in the saved version.
