Another way to remove comments in Word is to use Track Changes commands on the Review tab in the Ribbon. As weve mentioned, its a good idea to save a copy of the document and remove the comments in the copy. If you turn off Track Changes, Word will save all changes and comments that have been entered.

You can display all available styles in a Microsoft Word document using the Styles task pane. By default, only some of the available styles (including heading styles) are displayed in the Home tab in the Ribbon. There are 9 levels of heading styles that can be displayed as well as many other styles. In order to view all available styles, you will need to customize the Styles task pane.


To selectively edit document data, click the File tab > Info. Properties show in a pane on the right. Click Show All Properties. To add or change properties, hover your pointer over the property you want to update, for example Author, and enter the information. Click the File tab to return to your document and changes you made will be saved automatically.

Avoid unintentionally distributing hidden information, such as the document author and names that are associated with comments or tracked changes, by removing hidden data. All the revisions that were made to a document while the Track Changes feature was turned on remain part of a Word document until they are accepted or rejected. All comments that were inserted remain in the document until deleted. To show all changes and comments, click the Review tab on the ribbon, and click All Markup on the Tracking group.
