When you change the color of text, you're physically displaying a different color for each letter. Normally, Word displays text in black, but you can change the color to anything you want, such as bright red or dark green.
If you choose a light color for your text, it may be hard to read against a white background.
To change the color of text, follow these steps:
1. Click the Home tab.
2. Select the text you want to color.
3. Click the downward-pointing arrow to the right of the Font Color icon.
A color palette appears, as shown in Figure 5-4.
4. Click a color.
Word displays your selected text (from Step 1) in your chosen color.
After you choose a color, that color appears directly on the Font Color icon. Now you can select text and click directly on the Font Color icon (not the downward-pointing arrow) to color your text.
