There’s lots of good youtube tutorials online too should the instructions above not be enough.
When some formatted text is driving you nuts its a good idea to clear the formatting (Format-Clear Formatting) and if that does not work cut all the text out and paste it into Notepad and then start again by pasting it back in from Notepad (which strips all the formatting).

Admin Account Tips
1] your site should be backed up before installing plugins or doing updates, this can bring down your site or be very difficult to recovery from.
