Microsoft Word gives you the ability to create a wide range of print-formatted documents, including letters, resumes, envelopes, brochures and forms. It also includes a Track Changes feature that marks up changes made to a document by others, giving you the chance to view the document's history and accept or reject each specific change. This process can be very time-consuming if a file includes hundreds of individual edits, so Word allows you to remove all markup at one time by either accepting or rejecting all changes to the document and removing all comments.
