At some time or another, you have probably used a highlighter
pen to emphasize printed text with a bright background color,
perhaps as a study aid or to ensure that someone sees an
important passage. Word 2013 has a tool that you can use in
the same fashion to highlight text in your document with a
range of colors.

1 Select some text in your document.
2 On the Home tab, in the Font group, click the down-arrow on the
Text Highlight Color button and then, in the gallery that opens,
click the color that you want to use to highlight the selected text.

you choose a different color, even when you shut down and
restart Word. To use that color again, just click the main part of the
Text Highlight Color button (not the down-arrow). To remove high-
lighting from text, select that text and choose No Color in the highlight
