How to set Track Changes in Microsoft Word

Track Changes is a built in feature in Microsoft Word which allows you to see the changes that were made to the document.
To view changes, or to edit a document with them, follow the instructions below. To learn how to use the comment feature, click here.
 
1. In Word, press the “Review” tab and select “Track Changes” to highlight it and turn it on.
    

2. Begin typing anywhere in the document, making changes, deleting items, or adding parts. Word will track changes to text and formatting. 
 
3. To display comments changes, click the red line to the left of the document. The changes will appear in red. Click again on the line (now grey) to hide the comments.            
     
 
4. To keep changes, make sure you save the document. Saving under a different name than the original will help eliminate confusion.
