Ever tried to copy and paste some text in Microsoft Word and ended up with weird formatting that you can’t seem to fix? Unwanted bold letters or indentations?  It’s certainly happened to me more than once, so I was glad to find out a quick trick to stop that from happening. 

Here’s how it works:

Lets say I want to copy this piece of text. I highlight it and press Ctrl + C  or right-click and choose Copy.

When I want to paste in Word, I press Ctrl + Alt + V instead of Ctrl + V to paste and I get this Paste Options window. Choose unformatted text and all formatting will be removed.

Give it a try!
