Track changes in Word
When you want to see who’s changing what in your document, turn on Track Changes.
Click Review > Track Changes.
Now Word’s in Simple Markup view. Word marks up any changes that anyone makes to the document and shows you where the changes are by displaying a line near the margin.
Word shows a little balloon where someone’s made a comment. To see a comment, click the comment balloon.
To see the changes, click the line near the margin. That switches Word into All Markup view.
If you’d rather see all the comments, but not all the changes, click Show Comments.
Keep Track Changes on
You can prevent someone else from turning Track Changes off by locking Track Changes on with a password. (Be sure to remember the password so you can turn Track Changes off when you’re ready to.)
Click the arrow by Track Changes and click Lock Tracking.
Type a password, and then type it again in the Reenter to confirm box.
While tracked changes are locked, you can’t turn off change tracking, and you can’t accept or reject the changes.
To stop locking, click the arrow by Track Changes and click Lock Tracking again. Word prompts you to type your password. After you type your password and click OK, Track Changes is still on, but you can accept and reject changes.
Turn off Track Changes
To turn off Track Changes, click the Track Changes button. Word stops marking up new changes—but all of the changes that were already tracked stay marked up in the document until you remove them.
Remove tracked changes
Click Review > Next > Accept or Reject.
Word accepts the change or removes it and then moves to the next change.
To delete a comment, select it and click Review > Delete. To delete all comments, click Delete > Delete All Comments in Document.
