Format text to improve Word documents. Learn how to change the font, change font size, change font color, and change text alignment.
Any text you type in Word can be further customized by using the bold, italicized, or underlined options. You can even do a combination of all three options.
To avoid frustration, remember to select text before you apply style. If you choose a type style without selecting any text, Word uses your chosen styles on whatever text you type next.
To select a font, you can scroll through the font list. The list shows you all fonts that are available on the computer you are using.
As you scroll through the many different font names, take notice of those fonts that have TT beside their name. These TrueType fonts will look the same on both the computer screen and when you print them on paper.
