Tip #10: Protect Your Privacy with Document Inspector
Privacy, privacy, privacy; we hear a lot about it in this still-emerging and growing computing world. In Office 2007, Microsoft tries to help the privacy issue. By default, their documents can contain some information we just may not want others to see. However, the Document Inspector can help detect and remove this seemingly hidden, personal data. Types of information include the name of yourself or other authors of the document, your company, your computer name, or the name of the location you saved the document. Document revisions, different versions, tracked changes, and comments are also information we may not want to share.
To run the Document Inspector, click the Office Button, hover over Prepare, and click Document Inspector.
