HELP needed fast on MS Word question!

This may sound really stupid, but how do you make the formatting symbols in Word disappear (like the paragraph marks, the space dots, etc?)

I am doing a project that is due tomorrow and I need help fast! THANKS!

They won’t print, if you’re worried about them in hard copy. Soft copy, click Tools -> Options -> View tab, and uncheck any box next to something you don’t want to see.
