Today I thought I’d show you how to remove formatting marks from Outlook 2007 and 2003. You may never need to use this, but judging from the amount of people in my office who do, it may come in handy.
If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “Help! I have all sorts of funny symbols and backwards Ps in my e-mail,” you’re not alone. I can’t tell you how many times I get a question that sounds like that. When I get to the users’s computer, it usually looks like this:
Look familiar? So, how does one fix this problem?
1. Click your Office Button, then Editor Options.
2. Click “Display,” then uncheck “Show all formatting marks,” then click “OK.”
3. That’s all! Fixed!
1. Click “Tools,” then “Options.”
2. Click “View,” then uncheck “All” under “Formatting marks,” then click “OK.”
3. All done!!
Well, I hope this helps those of you out there who have had this issue!!
