Ok since we are not positive on the version you are using I am going to have you try a couple of ways.
Click the ¶ button on the Standard toolbar
Click the ¶ button in the Paragraph section of the Home tab
Also try to Click the Tools->Options menu item.
Click the View tab.
Under Formatting Marks, select ONLY Paragraph Marks and deselect all others.
Click the round Office button in the upper-left corner of the window.
Click the Word Options button.
On the left side of the dialog box, click Display.
Under Always Show These Formatting Marks On The Screen, put a check mark next to Paragraph Marks.
Make sure all the other entries in this section are unchecked.
From the Word menu, select Preferences
In the section titled "Nonprinting characters", check or uncheck the appropriate boxes to view the marks of your choice. Check All to see all formatting marks.
To save your changes, click OK.
Please try the above and if none of them work for you click reply to expert for further instructions.
