    What do you mean by remove shapes? Are you referring to images within the document? You could always just save the document as a plain text file and this will eliminate all images. The down side is any special formatting and text will be lost.

    No, VBA is required. You can select any one shape, then press shift key and select one by one by mouse. Then you can press delete key to remove them. The help is here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Add-change-or-delete-shapes-a34b10e5-32e4-422a-8269-c7e3fb917735

    To delete multiple shapes, press CTRL while you click all the shapes that you want to delete, and then press DELETE.
