Using Indents and Tabs

In Word 2010 indents and tabs add structure to documents. Use the MS Word indent ruler and tabs to help make documents clearer.


  1. Open an existing Word document. If you want, you can use this example.
  2. Practice using the Tab key to indent the first line of a paragraph.
  3. Select some text, and use the Increase Indent and Decrease Indent commands to see how they change the text.
  4. Explore the tab selector and all of the tab stops. Practice using each one.
  5. If you're using the example, add tab stops and tabs in the Work History section so all of the jobs line up with the most recent one.
