Word 2000 - remove paragraph formatting and dots between words

Good Day Experts!

I have a User here that has Word 2000 on their computer. There are paragraph symbols, dots between words and underlined stuff.  I have tried searching the net to figure out what is going on and I have been unsuccessful in finding a solution.  I am "guessing" that a combination of keys maybe were hit cause the entire document to be reformatted like this.

How can I remove all this formatting and get back to just the text?

Thanks,

There is a backwards "P" in the Formatting Bar - click that.

(it may be in the Standard Bar.)

Alternatively, go to Tools - Options - View, and clear the check boxes under Formatting Marks.

For the underlined words, turn the Spell checking OFF:SpellCheck OFF

The keyboard shortcut to toggle the display of non-printing formatting marks is Ctrl-* (and has the same effect as clicking on the ¶ symbol in the Home ribbon). You can manage which formatting marks get toggled by using the Word Options > Display dialog.
