First we are going to select the text we want to surround, then we go to the “Home” tab. Next, we will click on the drop-down arrow next to Borders and we will have to choose “Borders and shading”.

Now we'll need to use the Settings option on the left or the buttons below Preview on the right to add the border around the text. You can also adjust the Style, Color and Width settings in the center of the window to customize the border line as much as possible..

In the Apply drop-down text box, which is on the right side, we will have to select "Text", to finish, it only remains to click on "OK" to be able to apply the border.

As you can see, we are going to see the text outlined with a border as a result..
