I don't know what buttons I pushed to make this happen, but now whenever I
press the return button in a word document the "paragraph symbol" shows up.
Also, instead of spaces between words, a dash appears. How do I get rid of
this and get back to what I call normal format? Please Help!

What you're referring to are non-printing characters. Just click the pilcrow
(paragraph symbol) on your toolbar. Go to Tools|Options|View and deselect
the options under Formatting marks.

Click the button on the toolbar. (That's why it has that symbol, the same
as the paragraph mark...) See

Merely clicking the 'paragraph mark' does not always deselect this feature.
There are times you may need to go into Tools/Options/Formatting Marks &
deselect the check box next to paragraph.

Careful not to assume Jay Freedman
