Cannot Remove Borders or Gridlines in Microsoft Word

First, let's not confuse borders with gridlines. The rule of thumb is that borders print, and gridlines do not. This is true in Word and Excel, and probably many other Windows applications.

Gridlines, which are viewable and do not print (unless specifically set to print), can be viewed by choosing, from the menu, TableShow Gridlines. When you are already viewing gridlines, then the same menu option changes and Show Gridlines is not available, but Hide Gridlines is.


Gridlines appear gray. If your gridlines appear to print, then they're likely gray-colored borders.
