How to turn off highlighting in Vim

highlightvim
So recently, I got myself in the situation where everything was highlighted when I typed. Don’t ask me how I got myself in that situation, because I don’t know 🙄 To get rid of the brownish slug my letters were drowning in, I did three things;

Hit the Esc button.

Typed:

:noh

After I hit Enter, the brownish slug aka “highlighting” was gone.

 
Since I don’t know how to turn this brownish slug on, this is the only picture I have. Normally I post more pictures with my “How to’s”.  Yes I did try :seth, it did nothing. Not even the  god of the desert, storms, disorder, violence, and foreigners was summoned 😥

Remember you can always do the cliccie for a larger piccie 😛 Yes, people my laptop is so gross, so am I 😎 Yes I have a piece of tape on my camera, the world doesn’t need so me naked o_O
