How to Remove the Date & Time on MS Word Comments

Microsoft Word or MS Word offers many features to put on a document. In addition to date and time, the name of the author and comments from readers and author of the document can be included. The comments appear in the margin of a page along with date and time. But in sharing documents, you may want to remove personal information. Word offers a tool to help you remove the date and time and other properties from a document’s comments.
