Remove Styles from Text in Word: Overview

            There may come a time when you need to remove styles from text in Word after you have applied them. There are a couple of options available to you in Word to perform this action.

Then, click the “More” button in the “Styles” button group on the “Home” tab of the Ribbon. Then choose the “Clear Formatting” command from the drop-down list.
