Default Paragraph can't be un-highlighted


Hi,
I have a word document where i pasted in some highlighted text. (black text with a blue background).
Now the blue highlighting cannot be removed.
When i select the highlighted text, then select the highlighting feature, and click "no color", nothing happens...it just remains with the blue background.
Do you please know how i can get rid of the blue background highlighting.?

It may be shaded rather than highlighted.
First, there is always the option to paste as plain text. Select it, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, use paste options to paste as plain text.


Otherwise, Select it and press Ctrl+Spacebar.
