How to Remove Tracking Changes From a Word Document

Microsoft Word is the standard word processing application used by individuals, students and professionals to create documentation. Word comes equipped with a Track Changes feature that allows individuals to record the changes and deletions made in a document during the revision process. The creator of the document can then accept or reject the changes that have been made. Before submitting or sharing your document, you may want to remove the tracking changes from the Word document.
