Change options for Track Changes

Though most of the options for track changes are available from the ribbon, there are a few that aren’t used frequently. You can find them all in one place on the Track Changes Options dialog.

To open the Track Changes Options dialog, from the Review tab, in the Tracking group, click the Change Tracking Options dialog box launcher.
