To enable tracked changes, click the Track Changes button in the Tracking group of the
Review tab. Notice that the upper and lower portions of that button are separate. Use

users from turning off change tracking.

tracking on and off. If Track Changes is not displayed, right-click the status bar and click
to place a check next to Track Changes. Then click outside the menu to close it. Once it’s
on the status bar, click Track Changes to turn tracking on or off. Track Changes can also be
toggled using Ctrl+Shift+E.
