  • Word 2016/2010/2013: Click on the File tab in the top left corner of your Word window and select Options. Click on Advanced, set the Field Shading drop-down box to ‘Always’, and click OK.
  • Word 2007: Click on the round multicoloured Microsoft Office icon in the top left corner of your Word window and select Word Options. Click on Advanced, set the Field Shading drop-down box to ‘Always’, and click OK.
  • Mac versions: Go to the Word menu, select Preferences and then the View icon. Set the Field Shading drop-down box to ‘Always’, and click OK
