Default Just bought word for mac, the cursor is a rectangular box instead of an arrow!

It looks like a rectangular cartoon bubble, if you click on text it goes to paragraph formatting and font formatting info... I just want it to be a good-old fashioned blinking line. Please help it's driving me crazy.

In Windows 10, this stuff is under 'Ease of Access' in Settings, so check out the Mac equivalent.

What is found in Windows under settings is often found under Word > Preferences on the Mac.
