I converted my MS PowrPoint file to .pdf.  However in the Properties section, I noticed that under 'Location', it shows the file path.  For example: C:\Users\MyName\Desktop

I don't want my file path shown since it includes my name.  How can I hide the file path?

Not possible, but also not necessary. However, when you send the file to someone else your name won't show up in it any longer. It just shows the path where the file is saved on the local computer. You can see it by moving the file to another folder. The "Location" value will change accordingly.

Thanks.  Since the filepath automatically shows the Users\MyName, and since I'm unable to rename the MyName folder, my actual name will appear in the filepath. 

Luckily I've figured out a workaround.  I move the file into the C:\Users\   folder and not the C:\Users\MyName\  folder

Again, this information is not a part of the file. If you send it to someone else they will see something completely different there.
