Most of us don’t have time to discover all the ins and outs of the software we use on a daily basis and there are other things that you want Microsoft Word to do that seem impossible to those who aren’t well acquainted with the program’s intricacies. Countless hours can quickly swirl down the drain if you get stuck trying to figure out how to describe the problem so you can search for an answer.

  • select text vertically instead of horizontally?
