This answer was rated:

Please help me with drawing an arrow in MS Word 2010. I’m writing a chemical equation. I go to Insert Shapes , and click on the Arrow. I then drag the arrow to the appropriate length (shift for angle, control for length). I do not see how to change the width of the arrow or to change the color of the arrow. At present, the default is a blue arrow, but I want a black arrow. The line width is very small. I need a drawing toolbar.

 

Found Drawing tools at top. Wider line was black.
