Once highlighted, a small toolbar will appear. Click the 'B' icon within this toolbar to apply bold styling to your selected text.

3. Verify Bold Text Appearance

Check the highlighted text to make sure it now appears with bold formatting. If it does not look bold, click the 'B' icon once more to ensure that the bold format is applied.

4. Preview the Form for Bold Text

Click the eye-shaped preview icon. This is usually found at the top right of the screen. This will open a new tab where you can view your form as a respondent. 

5. Finish Editing or Close the Form

Google Forms saves your edits in real-time so there is no separate save button. Once you are satisfied with the bolded text, you can either continue to make other changes to your form or simply close the form or browser tab if you are finished.
