Looking for an easy way to build your knowledge of Styles?

Microsoft loads Word with an array of styles to help us format our documents. It provides a Styles button on the Home tab ribbon that brings up the Styles Gallery, which displays the list of available styles.

But, there isn’t a way to prioritize what displays in the Styles Gallery. So, we see the styles in the order Microsoft displays by default, which is not necessarily the order that is most efficient for us.
