Removing Track Changes

Ashford Writing Center tutors use the Track Changes setting on Microsoft Word documents and PowerPoint presentations. Using this setting, anything a tutor adds to your document appears in a different color than your text, and anything a tutor deletes will appear with a line strike. Tutors also add comment bubbles with this setting.

To remove these markings and comments from your document, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the "Review" tab.

  2. Click on each addition/deletion within the document. Select either "Accept" or "Reject" for each addition/deletion.

  3. Review all comment bubbles throughout your paper. Once you have reviewed all comment bubbles, click on each one and select "Delete." This is also how you remove comment bubbles in a PowerPoint presentation. Save the new file.
