With the “Track Changes” feature in Microsoft Word, users can add notes to a document. With this editing feature, deletions, additions, and editorial comments are shown on a marked-up draft of the document. The editorial marks help a writer or student learn from past mistakes and revise based on what a reviewer says, but you’ll probably want to work with a clean draft at some point. You can get out of this editing mode in MS Word with just a few clicks.
Start up Microsoft Word and open your file.
At the top of the window, click on the “Review” tab.
In the “Tracking” group, click on the drop-down box called “Final Showing Markup.”
From the list of choices, click “Final.” This is the final draft without any editorial notes or red-lined changes.
