Any Word feature that can save time and make you look good is worth tapping into, right?

One such feature: Word's built-in reviewing tools, which let you and others track all the changes you make as a document is written and edited.

With the Track Changes tool turned on, you can track each insertion, deletion and formatting change (see image). As you or your manager reviews tracked changes, you can accept or reject each one.
So, put away the red pen and sticky notes; this little-used feature will consolidate all editing comments and changes, making it easier for you to wrap up a job error-free.

How to start:

1. Open the Reviewing toolbar. On the View menu, point to Toolbars and click Reviewing.

2. Open the Tools menu; click Track Changes to begin keeping a record of additions and deletions.

3. Review other readers' changes by clicking 'Next' on the Reviewing toolbar. Click 'Accept Change' or 'Reject Change/Delete Comment' for each revision or comment.
