How to Hide or Unhide Text in Word Document

Sometimes we would like to hide some texts to make it invisible out of the need to protect sensitive and confidential information. Microsoft Word has a feature whereby you can hide text so that it does not visibly appear in the document. When the display of hidden text is turned off, the text is not deleted, its display is simply suppressed. You can read or print the document as if the text isn’t there. If you don’t want to delete text completely, hiding the text is a good option. Here’s how it is done.
