Highlighting Text in Word


Highlighting Text in Word

Word comes with a text highlighter that lets you mark up and colorize the text in your document without damaging your computer monitor. To highlight your text, click the Highlight button on the Formatting toolbar. Now you've entered Highlighting mode. The mouse pointer changes to something that looks like a thick pencil held at an angle and a capital I over it. When you drag the mouse over your text, that text becomes highlighted ? just as you can do with a highlighter on regular paper.
  • To stop highlighting text, click the Highlight button again or press the Esc key.
  • To change the highlighting color,  click the down-arrow by the Highlight button and choose the highlight color you prefer.
  • To unhighlight your text, click the down-arrow by the Highlight button and choose None as the highlight color. Then drag over your highlighted text to unhighlight.
  • To remove highlights from your entire document, press Ctrl+A to select all your text, then choose None from the Highlight button's drop-down list.
