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
