If one looks at file properties in Windows Explorer, the “Details” tab, – for many filetypes (for example, tiff or jpeg images, Office documents, etc.) there is the “Description” section with fields like “Title”, “Subject”, “Tags”, and “Comments”. Is there a way to read/write these fields from Perl or a PowerShell script?
PowerShell has gone through some iterations, and this can now be achieved with a native command: Get-ItemProperty
Example: Shows the current details of ntdll.dll file:
Get-ItemProperty C:\Windows\System32\ntdll.dll | format-list
