Determine The Mode Of The Document

When we save the Microsoft word documents in different formats that are of earlier versions we can be able to open them in those versions. Similarly we can open the file of earlier versions of Microsoft word in Office 2010.When a document is opened in Microsoft Word 2010 that was created in an earlier version of Word, Compatibility Mode is turned on.

Compatibility Mode makes sure that no new or enhanced features in Word 2010 are available while you work with a document, so that people who are using previous versions of Word will have full editing capabilities. Compatibility Mode also preserves the layout of the document.
To determine the earlier versions of Word in Microsoft Word 2010 and to open them: 

1) Check the document's title bar. If (Compatibility Mode) appears after the file name, the document is in either Word 2007 Compatibility Mode or Word 97-2003 Compatibility Mode. To determine which, do the following:
  • Click the File tab.
  • Click Info.
  • In the Prepare for Sharing section, click Check for Issues, and then click Check Compatibility.
  • Click Select versions to show.

A check mark appears next to the name of the mode that the document is in.
