    When I start MS Word normally the screen usually displays the the normal things that I see like the blank white space that I write on. But the next day something appeared and looks like a symbol(See Attach File). And I could not delete it!
    Question: How can I remove the freakin symbol!

    P.s. Sorry for the bad grammar cause I'm frustrated with this problem hope you can help me

    Go to Tools, Options, View tab, and remove any ticks in the Formatting Marks section. That symbol is the Paragraph Mark, and the dots show where spaces are. I think you may have All ticked in that area.

    Just hide the paragraph characters by clicking on this button in the menu bar:

    Basically the same thing said before by Randy, but a different way of doing it.
