One can ofcourse clear these "properties"/"metadata" by right clicking on the file,then "properties", going into the right hand most tab of the window that appears, the using one of the "create copies with all possible properties removed" or "clear selected properties from this file" options.
What is the equivalent of this in linux mint?
Is there a quick way, though hopefully without having to use command line methods, to do this for tens or hundreds of files at once. On windows you generally have to do the files one at a time because they might not all have all the possible properties so if you try and do many files at once it doesn't necessarily clear all the properties.
Specifically I'm asking this in the context of linux mint 17.3 MATE.
