If you have a document, assignment or dissertation that you would like to proofread, the Microsoft Word's Track Changes feature is an excellent option. You can make changes to the document that are highlighted so the original author can check them and decide whether to accept or reject them one by one. Thus, retaining total control over his/her thoughts, arguments or experiences. 1.Enable Track Changes and save the document with a new file name. Open the document to be edited with Microsoft Word (version 2007 or 2010), select the Review menu tab in the upper toolbar and then enable Track Changes by clicking the tab so it is highlighted. Then save the document with a new file name, for example filename1.docx, so that you now have two copies of the file (the original filename.docx for reference & filename1.docx which you will work with). 2.Edit the document, inserting or deleting letters, words, punctuation, etc.Inserted characters will be highlighted and underlined, while deleted characters will be highlighted and struck horizontally through the middle. Comments can be added by highlighting the word or section of text with the cursor (hold left click down and drag to select), in the place where you would like the suggestion to refer to, and then selecting the New Comment tab from the upper Review menu toolbar. A comment window will appear where you can write in feedback for the author about the specific area of text.
