I am trying to convert all the anchor points in my file to corner points. My file is something that I used Image Trace to create. The image was all angular and had no smooth corners or points. I know how to convert smooth anchors to corners, but I have hundreds of anchors to convert and I would like to be able to do this quickly. Thanks in advance!

it's hard to say how to change all the points together after tracing, but you can set the needed mode before it.

Go to Window > Image Trace and in Advanced section set Corners as 100%.
You can also tweak a bit Paths and Noise, but Corners is the main thing for your case.

Select All, then with Direct Selection Tool shift-click to deselect one anchor point. Click Convert selected anchor points to corner button. Direct select the previously deselected point and convert it.
