How to Change the Underline Style in Microsoft Word 2013

Just like a few of the more recent versions of Microsoft Word, the new Word 2013 allows a variety of different styles for underlining text. After selecting a new style you can use just like the normal Underline function. Simply select your text and click underline (found in the Font group under the Home tab), or use the keyboard shortcut (Control + U).

Here is an example of the different styles available.

(The ‘More Underlines…’ option simply opens the Font dialog box if you wanted to add other text effects to the underline style. Here you could change the font family, font size and other font styles.)

In addition to changing the look of the underline itself, you can also change the color of the underline. Hover your mouse over the ‘Underline Color’ to choose a new color.

  1. Nice I didn’t know there was a way to change the color of just the underline. I thought I had to recolor the entire section for that to work.
