Keyboard shortcut to delete headings in Microsoft Word

Another employee just sent me a training manual that I have to basically edit. It's over a 100 pages in Microsoft Word. Basically I need to delete so many headings (the formatting is all screwed up). Would there be a simple keyboard shortcut that would allow me to remove these headings much more faster? I just want to get through this as quickly as possible.

Nothing I have found that will do it cleanly. You might be better off changing each line. The other option is highlight all the text and select normal or no spacing. The problem here is it may cause all the other text to lose it’s formatting… I’m curious if the document looks fine on the computer from the person who sent it to you. Are you both using the version of Word?

    Generally, Alt+V+H is a shortcut key for accessing Header/Footer. First make a duplicate copy of your file. Now try this one. position the insertion point in the section that has the header you want to delete. In the Header & Footer group, click either Header/Footer, depending on which one you want to delete & Word displays a drop-down list of options. Click Edit Header, depending on your choice. Word displays the header or footer along with the Design tab of the ribbon. Select the contents of the header & press the Del key, or press Ctrl+X.
