Steps to delete a Quick Style

Get rid of a style you don’t need anymore.

Ready to chuck a style you don’t use anymore?

Callout 1 In the Styles task pane, right-click the style you wish to delete.
Callout 2 Select Remove from Quick Style Gallery.

What the text reverts to depends on what you applied before; if you applied another style or format earlier, the text will revert to that. A paragraph with a paragraph style that gets deleted will revert to Normal. There are a few built-in styles you can't delete, whether they've been modified or not. These are:

  • Normal paragraph style.
  • Heading paragraph styles.
