Check Your File for Hidden or Personal Data
You can remove any personal information that an Office program stores in a document. For issues
of privacy, you may want to remove this information before you share a document with anyone.
Depending on the Office program, the Document Inspector searches your document for comments,
revision marks, versions, and ink annotations. It searches document properties for hidden metadata
and personal information. It inspects for task pane apps saved in the document as well as
information like hidden rows, columns, or worksheets. If your document contains custom XML data,
headers, footers, watermarks, or invisible content, the Document Inspector alerts you.
