How to Print a Word Document without Comments

Printing a document without comments is quite an easy thing to do once you know where to find the option. By following the three steps below you can disable the printing of comments in Word. Let’s get started.

1. Open your Word document and go to the Print options.

2. Under Settings click on Print all Pages

3. Then in the menu click on Print Markup and make sure the checkbox disappears.

You should now see that the entire comment bar will no longer be visible in your print preview screen. You can now change other settings such as print only odd pages, even pages, only the current page and so on. This setting, however, has to be set each time you want to print your document. Word does not remember this and you should make sure to disable Print Markup again before attempting to print your document.
