How to Apply Quick Styles in Word 2007

When you use Quick Styles in Word 2007, you don't have to bother yourself with any text or paragraph formatting. Simply choose the Quick Style, and the text size, font, attributes, and paragraph formatting are chosen for you automatically.

You can apply a Quick Style to your text before or after you write, although you may find it better to write first and apply style later.

1

Select the text you want to format.

If you’re an inpatient highlighter, you may grab more — or less — than you want. You know the old saying . . . something about haste and waste?

2

Click the Home tab to display the Styles group.

The Quick Styles gallery displays some of the available styles. Use the arrows to scroll through the gallery's styles, or use the More button, located in the lower-right corner of the Quick Styles gallery, to display the menu detailing each option.

Choose a style from the Quick Styles gallery.

As you hover the mouse over each Quick Style, text in your document is updated to reflect the style's appearance — a boon to help you make that difficult choice.

3

Click the Quick Style you want to apply.

Word applies the style to your paragraph or selected text.
