How do I view, accept, or remove changes made to my Word document?

Please make sure that you are using the full version of Microsoft Word, instead of Word Starter.

If you are using the full version of Microsoft Word on Windows, follow these steps: 

  1. Go to the Review tab in Microsoft Word.
  2. In the Track Changes section, click Display for Review. 
  3. Select one of three options from the drop-down menu to choose how to view the document: Original (your original text), All Markup (the revisions our team made), or Simple Markup (the clean version of your text with all suggestions incorporated).

Then, click Show Markup and make sure that the Comments, Insertions and Deletions, and Formatting options have a checkmark next to them. If not, click on them to switch them on.

If the comments and revisions are still not visible:

  1. Go to the search bar at the top of the screen.
  2. Type Trust Center in the search bar.
  3. In the list of options that pop up in the new window, select Privacy Options.
  4. Ensure that there is a checkmark next to Make hidden markup visible when opening or saving and click OK at the bottom of the window.

To accept all revisions in the document: 

  1. Click the Review tab and go to the Changes section.
  2. Click Accept and select Accept All Changes

To remove all revisions in the document, please do the following:

  1. Click the Review tab and go to the Changes section.
  2. Click Reject and select Reject All Changes.

Please note that individual revisions (insertions or deletions) and comments can be removed by right-clicking each one and selecting Reject Insertion/Deletion or Delete Comment respectively.
