Xnview shows EXIF and edits IPTC and XMP.

"I have always Used EXIFER for this. I checked the developer's web page for a link for this and see that EXIFER is not being developed ANY FURTHER. The author recommends several more up to Date utilities including:

XnView
IrfanView
KUSO EXIF Viewer
ACDSee (commercial)

The exifer page is here http://www.friedemann-schmidt.com/software/exifer/"

"I just discovered that Windows Explorer (at least in Windows 10.0.18362) can edit some EXIF/XMP fields. Right click file > Properties > Details. From a quick test on a jpg file, here are the editable values and their corresponding metadata fields, as reported by exiv2 -pa pengwin.jpg (exiv2):
