    Would magnetic earth magnets still have the same magnetic properties in deep space?

    I don't see why not. The only difference is that there will be no atmosphere and magnetism isn't dependent on an atmosphere.

    Earth magnets will still be attracted to metals whether it is in space or not.  They are not dependent on gravity or anything other than just being attracted to another magnetic material.

    I think that its properties will change because in earth , the magnet is in earth's magnetic.This will affects the magnets properties.So in earth it has null points, where the resultant magnetic field is zero.In deep space earth's magnetic field is absent and only small interstellar magnetic field.So changes must occur.

    no.  they would only work if you were on or near a planet with whatever it is that makes the poles magnetized...iron ore?
