How to Edit a Web Page Properties in SharePoint 2016

After you create a web page, you can always change the metadata and properties later.
Based on the configurations by an owner or an administrator, certain properties may
not be visible to you.
To edit properties, go to Settings, select Edit page, and under the Page tab, click on Edit
From Edit properties page, you can change the title, content type, contact name, and
other details about the web page. All the bits of information associated with a page
makes it easy for the page to be indexed and found when searched.
Under Edit Properties, other details can be changed, including SEO properties and View
properties. The SEO properties such as keywords and meta descriptions apply to both
the internet and the intranet.
