So I'm currently running Microsoft Office 2010 and I'm working on a document in Word. I just highlighted some text to try to change the color but nothing happened. I'm not sure why this is happening. Can someone help?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You just need to highlight the text, then in the ribbon on top, click on the down arrow near the A with the red bar under it and select your color. That should be it. If the document is protected you may not be able to make changes. If you are still having an issue, post any errors you may be getting so we can see if we can replicate the problem.

    Assuming the things that you described are not easy. Probably you know change the color of text in Word 2010, but somehow that time it did not work for some reasons. If this is the fact, perhaps, there is some settings are required on your system. Assuming this is Windows OS, open Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Ease of Access Center, under this, 'Make the computer easier to see' and locate for 'High Contrast' section and deselect the checkbox like, 'Turn on or off High Contrast when left ALT + left SHIFT + Print Screen is pressed' (For Windows 7). And after that again check that if it is helpful.

    Moreover, you can try to repair MS Office and check if that helps. For procedure, please link here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/repair-an-office-application-7821d4b6-7c1d-4205-aa0e-a6b40c5bb88b
