Description

A user has pointed out that the Tails website mentions MAT to remove metadata on a few pages but doesn't explain how:

https://tails.boum.org/doc/sensitive_documents/sound_and_video/
https://tails.boum.org/doc/sensitive_documents/graphics/
https://tails.boum.org/doc/sensitive_documents/office_suite/

At the bottom there is this:

You can do this with 'Files' viewer by right-clicking on the
relevant file(s) and selecting 'Remove metadata'.

The user proposes we add instructions such as:

You can do this with 'Files' viewer by right-clicking on the
relevant file(s) and selecting 'Remove metadata'.

This would encourage and help users to actually use MAT.

Good idea! Making this a small and actionable subtasks of #8416.

It's small enough so I could fit it in our Technical writing view.
