Too many Track Changes? Confused? Here is the solution!

This requires Word 2013. Just choose Simple Markup from the dropdown. The tracking is hidden. The document is shown as though all changes have been accepted. Wherever there are changes, those are shown with a red line in the margin. Click on the red line to view all tracked changes. Simple and Effective.


Ctrl – Drag = Copy anything


Another simple but extremely useful action. Press Ctrl key and drag the item to copy it. Works in File Explorer, Desktop icons, Paragraphs, SmartArt, Charts, Pivots, Shapes, Pictures, Videos, Visio Shapes, selected cells, and so on across Office and Windows.

Exception: For PowerPoint thumbnail view (left side of Normal slide view), drag first and then press CTRL key.
