View File Metadata

Learn how to view the metadata of a file in macOS.

In this lesson for macOS Mojave, I look at how to view the complete metadata of a file in a Finder Window. If you’re not familiar with metadata, each file has different types of data attached to it. For example, if you have an image, you’re going to see what camera that was taken with, or if the flash was used. If it’s a PDF, the metadata includes how many pages are in that PDF. We can now view this information in a Finder window. Let’s see how we do this on the Mac.
