    By default, the photos taken by Windows Phone contain some personal information like the camera settings and the location. I know that this can be disabled in the camera settings. I would like to add this location information to most of the photos I take. But for some photos that I want to share to public, I hope that I can manually remove this information.

    I upload those pictures into my Skydrive and copy them to some temporary folder. When I open the "Properties" window for those photos, there is a "Remove Properties and Personal Information" link in the "Details" tab. But when I click the link, it complains that "I need to provide administrator permission". I am logged in using my admin account so I just click the "Continue" button with a shield icon. Then I get a "File Access Denied" dialog saying that I need a permission from "S-1-5-21-......". It seems like some user that does not exist on my computer but exists somewhere else.

    Does anyone have a similar issue and know the solution?

    You can turn off location storing in the settings, and the simplest way to remove metadata is edit and save photo using picture editors like "photo shader"
