Applying Paragraph Styles in Microsoft Word

1.   Click anywhere within the paragraph to be formatted. You do not need to select the entire paragraph, although doing so will also work.

2.   From the Format menu, choose Styles and Formatting. The Styles and Formatting window opens.

3.   In the Styles and Formatting window, click the name of the paragraph style to be applied. If the desired style is not listed, select another group of styles from the Show drop-down list. Paragraph styles are marked with the  symbol.

Alternatively, you can apply the desired style directly by selecting it in the Style list of the Formatting toolbar.
