Whenever I select a word in Word 2010 and move the cursor up, an annoying floating window appears with fonts, etc. Does anyone know how to remove this feature?

This windows is called the Mini Toolbar which contains formatting options. I guess Word developers decided to have this shown everytime text is selected is because it is assumed that when you select text, you're going to format it. – Peachy Nov 7 '12 at 15:28

You can disable that toolbar by doing the following:

  1. Go to File → Options
  2. Under General, uncheck "Show Mini Toolbar on selection"
  3. Click OK
