You can remove the date and time stamp when proof reading with "track changes."

Correcting a document using "track changes" can be very useful when you are editing a document for someone else. But do they really need to know that you were up until 3 a.m. doing the corrections? You can turn off the date and time stamp, which also resets the reviewer's name to "Author."

In Microsoft Office Word 2010, go to the Office button menu then click on 'Prepare.'
