How do you hide paragraph symbols on the front page in Microsoft Word?

I need directions on hiding symbols.

In Word 2007 - right click the "view" tab at the top of the screen, then the customize option. On the right side of the screen that comes up you'll see an option that says "show all" with the paragraph symbol. Click that, then click add. It will show up in your quick bar and you can turn it off.

There are two ways to do this. Then you can either go to the View menu and select "Hide Formatting" or click on the paragraph icon in the tool bar. This will remove the paragraph symbols on the page. The symbols will no longer be shown.

While in Microsoft Word, you click on the paragraph symbol which will say show/hide once you put your cursor on it and the symbols will disappear.

Paragraph symbols can be enabled or disabled for the whole document. To hide Paragraph symbols in a document, click on the Home tab, and under Paragraph section, click show/hide.

The "Show/Hide" button is located on the Paragraph toolbar. It looks like a backwards "P". Click on it once and the paragraph marks will be hidden.

This varies from version to version, but in pre-2007 versions go to Tools/Options and click the View tab. Uncheck the boxes in the Formatting Marks section of the page for what formatting you dont want to see, "Paragraph Marks" in this case.

There are two ways to turn off the paragraph symbols. Look in your toolbar for a paragraph symbol. Click on it to turn off the paragraph symbols in your document. If you don't see a paragraph symbol, press these three keys at the same time: CTRL-ENTER-8
