What is this image removal technique

Before proceeding with the process of removing all images from a Word document, let's give you some information about which tool or technique we are using.

Specifically, there is a built-in tool called “Find and Replace”, which allows the user to find items in the Word document and replace them with something of the user's choice. This feature also works effectively in removing all images from a Word document at once and not replacing them.

This method removes all images and graphics, such as charts and tables, from a Word document and leaves a blank space.

How to use Find and Replace to remove all pictures in Word

  • Open the document with Microsoft Word.
  • In the menu bar at the top right, click the “Replace” button in the Edit section.
  • A Find and Replace window will open. In the Find what box, type ^ g.

Note: you can also press the "More" button, then the "Special" button and select "Graphics". Word will automatically insert "^ g" in the "Find what" box. Here "^ g" stands for "Graph".

  • Press the "Replace All" button in the "Find and Replace" window.
  • This will remove all images, charts, graphs, etc. From Word document.
