How to Get Rid of Text Blocks in MS Word


Microsoft Word offers a useful formatting feature called "text boxes." In these boxes, you can enter blocks of text, separate from the document text, which can be formatted and placed anywhere within the document. The rest of the document's text wraps around these text boxes instead of displacing them. However, if you decide you no longer require a text box, it can be removed with a simple procedure.

  • Open your Word document in Microsoft Word.

  • Hover your mouse pointer over any corner of the text box, until the pointer turns into a plus sign with arrows on each end.

  • Left-click without moving your mouse to select the text box.

  • Press the "Delete" key to remove the text box. The text in the rest of your document automatically adjusts to accommodate the space left by the deleted text box. Alternatively, right-click the box and select "Cut" to remove and place it on your clipboard for future use in another location.
