change font colour

Sometimes there is a line of highlighted text, in a docx file that I received and opened. The color is pink. It is hard to read. It is too light. Any way I can make it red? But so this color change from pink to red is permanent?

Since this is .docx formatted file, you can’t do anything but manually change every occurrence because Word has no notion of character style.
