How to Remove Track Changes in Google Docs

Click “Tools” once more and uncheck “Track Changes” to disable tracking changes.

Google Docs is an incredibly helpful tool to use when working on documents with others. One of the features that can be enabled is track changes. This feature allows all parties to see the changes that are made to the document. However, it is sometimes necessary to turn off track changes. In this tutorial, we will show you how to do just that.

To turn off track changes in Google Docs, you will need to do the following steps:

1. Open your web browser and go to Google Docs.

2. Click on the first link that appears and make sure it is not an advertisement.

3. Log in to your account or sign up for a free account if you do not have one.

4. Once you are on the home screen, you can create a new document, open a recent document, or choose a template provided by Google Docs.

5. If you want to turn off track changes, you will need to know what they are. You can check out a tutorial on our channel on how to track changes in Google Docs.

6. To hide all the edits like comments and suggestions, go to View > Mode and select “Viewing” before sharing with anyone.

7. If you want to remove the track changes completely, you can remove spelling changes and comments, but you cannot remove the option altogether as it is an important feature for people to know if changes have been made.

8. You can change the editing to suggesting, which will change edits to suggestions that you can accept or reject, or you can read or print the final document to prevent any further changes.

By following these steps, you can easily turn off track changes in Google Docs and continue working on your document without any interruptions. We hope this tutorial has been helpful to you. Thank you for reading!
