Microsoft Word - Apply Quick Styles and Themes

You can apply Quick Styles and themes to give your document a consistent, professional look. Word offers many styles and themes to choose from.

Apply a Quick Style to text

  1. Place the pointer in the text that you want to format.

    Note: If you place the pointer in a paragraph, the style is applied to the whole paragraph. If you select specific text, only the selected text will be formatted.

  2. On the Home tab, point to a style to see how the text would look with that style.

    The Styles gallery is on the Home tab

  3. Select the style you want to apply to the text.
