Track Changes can help you edit Word documents
See insertions and deletions in Microsoft Office Word documents by using Track Changes, and use comments to discuss document text.

About this course

This course includes:

  • Three self-paced lessons and two practice sessions for hands-on experience.
  • A short test at the end of each lesson; tests are not scored.
  • A Quick Reference Card you can take away from the course.


After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Turn Track Changes on and off, and insert marked revisions.
  • Review tracked changes, and accept or reject them.
  • Insert, view, and delete comments.
  • Customize how tracked changes and comments are displayed.
  • Review to ensure that no unwanted revisions or comments remain in distributed documents.

Suppose that your manager has given you a memo to review before it's sent to a group of employees.

But she doesn't want you to make final changes to the memo. Instead, she wants to see what changes you propose, read your comments, accept or reject your changes, and remove your comments. That's where Track Changes comes in.

She also wants to be sure that when the memo is distributed, it won't show any revisions or comments, which happened last time. That's where tracked changes go out.

Get to know this feature of Word, and you'll be proud of your track record.
