    I have Windows 7 Professional. When I am keying in Windows 10, the document mysteriously goes into review mode with red print underlined and changes. I don't want to see this EVER. I have hated this mode since Windows 3. How do I get out of this mode? Using control shift 8 doesn't work neither does using the paragraph symbol.

    What is "keying in Windows 10"? Why did you post in the Windows 10 forum if you are using Windows 7?

    What document? In what application is it open?

    My operating system is Windows 7 Professional. I am having trouble with Word 10. Mysteriously, when I am keying on a Word document, it goes into review mode with red underlined type. How do I get out of this mode? There is no review icon in this Word program. I have hated this review mode ever since I encountered it in Word 2003 when I was forced to bypass this mode every time I started up Word. My Word document is unusable unless I can get back to regular mode. How can I do it?

    OK, I moved the thread to Business Applications, where you are more likely to get help.

    Is this Word 10 a legitimate program or a hacked pirated version of Microsoft Word? If the former can you give us a link to a description of it?

    Sounds like the Proofing option "Check spelling as you type" is turned on. Go to File tab, Options, Proofing to turn it off.

    Is Word 10 actually Microsoft Word 2010 or something else? By "keying" do you mean "typing"?

    If it's MS Word 2010 and if it's not spell check then you might have enabled Track Changes/Markup, See here: https://support.office.com/en-gb/ar...n-or-off-af319ed2-7cf8-4c44-9359-ca2faf9d8655

    Since this option is not enabled by default you either turned it on or are hitting a key combination to enable it as you work on a document.

    See here for Word 2010 hot keys: http://www.veodin.com/keyrocket/word-2010-shortcuts/
    Search that site for the word "Show" or "Markup" to see the possible key combinations to disable/enable certain things.
    Example:
    Alt, H, 8 Show All - Show paragraph marks and other hidden formatting symbols. - Home > Paragraph > Show All

    This is a purchased copy of Word 10.
