Changing the Text Style
Changing the Text Style
The text style defines the appearance of text in one or more of the following
ways:
Bold: Press Ctrl+B.
Italic: Press Ctrl+I.
Underline : Press Ctrl+U.
Strikethrough: This formatting draws a line through text.
Subscript: Use this to create text that falls below the text line, as in the 2
in H 2 O.
Superscript: Use this to create text that sits higher than the top of the
text line, as in the 2 in E = mc 2 .
To change the style of text, follow these steps:
1. Click the Home tab.
2. Select the text you want to change.
3. Click a Style icon, such as Bold or Underline.
4. Repeat Step 3 for each additional style you want to apply to your text
(such as italic and underlining ).
If you select any style change without selecting any text, Word applies your
style changes to any new text you type from the cursor’s current position.
Changing Colors
Color can emphasize text. There are two ways to use color:
Change the color of the text (Font color).
Highlight the text with a different color (Text Highlight color).
Changing the color of text
When you change the color of text, you’re physically displaying a different
color for each letter. Normally, Word displays text in black, but you can
change the color to anything you want, such as bright red or dark green.
