The document I downloaded has track changes turned on. How do I Accept the Changes?

Some of the documents you will find on the Office of Human Resources website will, by default, have Track Changes turned on, so that you can quickly see the changes you or others have made to the document.  Once you are done editing your document you may want to view your file without your edits.  To do this follow these steps.

You will start with your text looking similar to the following example:

Accepting your Track Changes
