In word on a document I have I copied some web text for notes I was making for myself

I am currently getting what are vertical lines on the left with  every additional line I put into my file.
I am unfamiliar with this markup in Word.

Can some one help me get rid of it please. It appears to be some supposedly helpful feature which only effects newly edited
text  but it is unsightly and not something I want.
It would help to know what it actually is and now I wish to remove this feature or disable it - If necessary modify it

Here is a screenshot. I highlighted the graphic vertical line in yellow to make the problem mode more understandable
Note everything

I may have actually fixed this myself by checking off no markup but I wanted to understand what mode this put me into

    I suspect you have "Track changes" enabled. This will add a red line for every insertion, so you can easily see the changes.

    If you don't want that, go to "Review"->"Accept"->"Accept all changes and stop tracking".

    I believe the markups were enabled under the view menu  so eliminating such annoyances would be a great accomplishment for Microsoft should they choose to make this program work better. Its awful that these markups now just show up and when you hover over them insteaad of intelligently telling the person what it is it does noting and worse if you do not know how to disable the markups what a pain in the neck that is!!!
    I think I have a handle on it now though - Thanks!
