Sometimes, you may find that you have applied too much formatting to your text, making it
difficult to read. Or perhaps you simply applied the wrong formatting to your text. In that case,
instead of undoing all your formatting changes manually, you can use the Clear Formatting command
to remove any formatting you have applied to the document text. When you apply the Clear
Formatting command, which is located in the Home tab on the Ribbon, Word removes all formatting
applied to the text, and restores the default settings.
1 Select the text from which you
want to remove formatting.
Note: If you do not select text,
Word removes text formatting from
the entire document.
2 Click the Clear Formatting
A Word removes all formatting
from the selected text.
