How to remove the background in the Word?

Often, when working with various kinds of documentation, information packages and statistical reports, you may notice that the data in them is “highlighted” in a certain color. This is done for convenience, to highlight the key points of the document.

In practice, viewing hundreds of such motley pages leads to eye strain. This label is hampered by the need to create a report based on an existing document. Knowing how to remove the background in Word, you can avoid such problems.

Remove page background

If the document is supplied not only with selected text fragments, but even with whole color pages, then you can remove them as follows:

  1. select the section "Page Layout";
  2. click the “Page Color” button in the “Page Background” panel;
  3. mark the item “No color”.

The color assigned to the pages in this document will disappear.

Remove table background

Dedicated tables are also not uncommon in technical or financial documentation. You can get rid of the general background of the table as follows:

  1. we move the cursor to any place in the table;
  2. click the right mouse button;
  3. select the item "Borders and Shading";
  4. open the “Fill” tab in the pop-up window;
  5. expand the palette (the arrow under the caption “Fill”);
  6. select the item "No color";
  7. Press the "OK" button.

The colored background of the cell in Word is not more difficult to be deleted than the background of the entire table. For this:

  1. Move the cursor to the cell where you want to remove the background;
  2. click the right mouse button;
  3. select the item "Borders and Shading";
  4. open the “Fill” tab in the pop-up window;

  6. expand the palette (the arrow under the caption “Fill”);
  7. select the item "No color";
  8. Press the "OK" button.

We remove the background chart

  1. hover over the border of the diagram;
  2. click the right mouse button;
  3. select the item “Format of the diagram area ...”;
  4. go to the “Fill” item (left);
  5. put a dot in front of "No fill";
  6. Click the "Close" button.

Remove the text background

Text in MS Word can be marked in 2 ways:

  • using fill;
  • using selection.

This red, gray or any other marking is also removed in different ways. In the first case, it will be like this:

  1. we select that fragment from which it is necessary to remove marking (or we select all text);
  2. select the section "Home";
  3. click on the arrow next to the “Fill” button (with the image of a pouring bucket) in the “Paragraph” panel;
  4. select the item "No color".

In the second case:

  1. we select that fragment from which it is necessary to remove marking (or we select all text);
  2. select the section "Home";
  3. click on the arrow next to the “Text selection color” button (with the image of a felt-tip pen and letters) on the Font panel;
  4. select the item "No color".

The same applies to the selected text in the table.
