How to align text in Word, with aligning left and right, center, justify and not aligned
How to line things up in Word? There are four alignments in Word: Align Left (Ctrl + L), Center (Ctrl + E), Align Right (Ctrl + R) and Justify (Ctrl + J), the shortcut keys in parentheses are their shortcuts.
Align Left means that the text is aligned to the left margin. Center means that the text is displayed in the middle of the page. The full line of text does not show the effect, and the text is less than one line, the effect is obvious; Align Right means that the text is aligned to the right margin; Justify means that the text is evenly distributed between the two margins. When it is less than one line, the words will not be filled with spaces and occupy one line.
