In Depth Information
Whether you work on a document alone or with others, it’s
often important to keep a record of what’s been changed, who
made the changes, and when the changes were made. In Word
2013, the Track Changes feature handles those details.
Turn on Track Changes
1 On the Review tab, in the Tracking group, click Track Changes, if it
isn’t already selected.
2 Click the drop-down list at the top of the Tracking group and select
All Markup, if it isn’t already selected.
3 Edit or reformat the text.
TIP In Outline or Draft view, you can position the cursor on a
change to see its information or, on the Review tab, click
CAuTIon The built-in keyboard shortcut to switch Track
Changes on and off is Ctrl+Shift+E. If you suddenly start seeing
red text in a document while you’re editing, you might have pressed
that combination by mistake.

Changes indicator on the status bar, see “Customizing the
