In Microsoft Word, you can easily format your text using various styles, including bold, italic, and underline. Here’s how you can apply these formatting options:

Bold Text:

  1. Select the Text:
    • Use your mouse to highlight the text you want to make bold.
  2. Use the Ribbon:
    • Go to the “Home” tab on the Ribbon.
    • In the “Font” group, find the “B” (which stands for Bold) and click it.
    • Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut:
      • Windows: Ctrl + B
      • Mac: Command + B

Italicize Text:

  1. Select the Text:
    • Use your mouse to highlight the text you want to italicize.
  2. Use the Ribbon:
    • Go to the “Home” tab on the Ribbon.
    • In the “Font” group, find the “I” (which stands for Italic) and click it.
    • Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut:
      • Windows: Ctrl + I
      • Mac: Command + I

Underline Text:

  1. Select the Text:
    • Use your mouse to highlight the text you want to underline.
  2. Use the Ribbon:
    • Go to the “Home” tab on the Ribbon.
    • In the “Font” group, find the “U” (which stands for Underline) and click it.
    • Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut:
      • Windows: Ctrl + U
      • Mac: Command + U

Applying Multiple Formats:

  • If you want to apply multiple formatting styles to the same text (e.g., bold and italic), you can either click the buttons in sequence or use the keyboard shortcuts accordingly.
  • To remove formatting, simply select the formatted text, go to the “Home” tab, and click the respective formatting button to toggle it off.

These steps should work for most versions of Microsoft Word. However, the specific layout and options might vary slightly depending on your version. Always refer to the Ribbon for the most common formatting options, and you can explore additional formatting features in the “Font” group.
