How to Turn Off Markup As a Default in Word 2007


Office 2007 has a useful markup feature that appears by default in Word documents. When you make a change, the document will put a note regarding it in the margin. This is great feature if your are collaborating with others on the project, but can get annoying if you are going at it alone. Do not fret however, since it takes about a minute to disable the markup feature.

  • Open your Office Word 2007 application.

  • Hit the "Office" icon in the top left corner of the interface. Click the "Word Options" button.

  • Click the "Trust Center" option in the left column.

  • Hit the "Trust Center Settings" button.

  • Select "Privacy Options" in the left column. Remove the check mark next to the "Make hidden markup visible when opening or saving" option.

  • Click the "OK" button.
