In my Word document, I have a text box with text, and I formerly had a picture within the text box.

I deleted the picture, and now I have the anchor (blue).  I can not delete it.  I know it will not print out, but it bothers me, and I would like to eliminate it.

How can I delete the anchor?

Thanks

Show all non-printing characters (the reverse P symbol in the ribbon)
Presss CTRL+A to select all the content in the document.
You should now see the outline of the empty text box. Click in it or on its border and then press delete or backspace.
