Place your cursor directly above the line. You cannot actually select the line, as it's not really "there." It's a border that was automatically generated when you typed three hyphens (-), underscores (_), equal signs (=), or asterisks (), then pressed Return.
Click on the Format menu. (Note: in Word 2007 select the Page Layout menu and then look for the Page Background portion of the ribbon and click on Page Borders. Go to tab Page Border and select None. Do the same for tab Borders) Select Borders and Shading...
3Turn off the border. In the Borders and Shading window, click on the "None" button. The line should disappear when you do.
- If the border does not disappear at first try these steps:
- Select any text immediately before or after the line.
- Select Borders and Shading from the Format menu, as before.
- In the lower right hand corner, from the "Apply to:" menu, if "Paragraph" is selected then select "Text," or if "Text" is selected then select "Paragraph."
- Click OK and the line should disappear.
- If the line simply moves up one paragraph, either repeat this process until it completely disappears, or select the entire document repeat the process.
Note: In Word 97, the menu is called Autocorrect, and the check box is called Borders.
