Meet two blogging moms who have a book coming out soon, and hear how they used Microsoft Office--especially Word and the Track Changes feature--to write it and make changes without losing their work. (Spoiler alert: I like the part in this video about the different colors.)
To learn more about tracking changes in Word, see Turn Track Changes off or on, or hide or reveal tracked changes.
Today's post about track changes in Word is contributed by Louis Broome, a manager and writer for Office.com.
To turn Track Changes off, on the Review tab, in the Tracking group, click the Track Changes button (the paper & pencil with the healthy orange glow, pictured below). Here's the relevant piece of Word real estate:

Today's post about page margins in Word is contributed by Joy Miller, a writer for Office.com.
Margins are the blank spaces outside the main body of text on the top, left, right, and bottom edges of a page. When you change the page margins of a document, you change where text and graphics appear on the page.
In addition to the one-inch default margin settings, Microsoft Word 2010 includes some pre-formatted margin settings that you can apply to your documents quickly and easily.
In Microsoft Word, you can hide the top and bottom margins to reduce the amount of white space that appears between the pages in Print Layout view. The vast majority of the work I do in Word is in the Print Layout view (and this only applies to the Print Layout view), so I find this to be a really handy feature for saving precious screen space. I use it a lot! And it’s really easy to turn on … maybe too easy?
If you’re unaware of the feature and you accidentally turn it on, you might wonder where your headers and footers have gone. They’re still there, and I show you how to see them again in this video.
I demonstrate this feature in Word 2010, but the feature works just the same in Word 2007 and almost the same in 2003 – the only difference being you can turn it on with a single click in Word 2003 … too, too easy?

How do you generate ideas? And how do you go from those first ideas through the editing and the polishing to a completed project?
These videos walk you through different ways to get from start of an idea to a finished work. They're a mix of Office 2007 and Office 2010, but the processes work in both. Read and see the full story...
Maybe you love color-coding. I know I do. But the Word shading colors that are available in the Highlight command can be limiting. You can run out of colors quickly, because there aren't very many.
But there's a way to color-code your document with all the colors shown here...
You can use Word to work together on your reports and team projects from start to finish. And you can all work on a document at the same time, without having to send a dozen copies in email or bury yourself in a blizzard of paper printouts. Here's how...
The new Get control of page numbers, headers, and footers training course can take the headache out of headers and footers. The intermediate self-paced course for Word 2010 includes video, so that you can see what's going on in real time, and a practice session.
Start your training right away, or find out more...
