Add Effects To Text In Word

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help, MS Word

Microsoft Word offers a whole lot of features.  Sometimes so many that it’s overwhelming. One of the easiest ways to jazz up a plain-looking document is to use the Text Effects and Typography feature.  Let’s take a look at how you can take text from plain to fancy in a few easy steps.

First, open or create a new Word document. Then click the Home tab.


Type your text and select it or select some text you’ve already written.


In the ribbon, select the Text Effects and Typography icon. Just click the drop-down arrow beside it.

You’ll get a drop-down menu with a whole lot of options for type styles.


Click on one of the options to change your text.

Your text will now look like this.


Tomorrow, in part 2 of this article, we’ll experiment with some type styles and effects.
