When working in Word XP formatting text doesn't require much. Just follow the steps to take in this free lesson.
Any text you type in Word can be further customized by using the bold, italicized, and underlined options. You can even do a combination of all three options!
To avoid frustration, remember to select text before you apply a 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, which shows you all of the fonts available on the computer you're using.
As you scroll through the many different font names, take notice of 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.
