Justify in MS Word

MS Word allows users to align the text to the sheet's margins. There are four types of alignment in MS Word:

  • Left Alignment: The shortcut to implement left alignment is Ctrl+L. This allows the user to align the text to the left margins of the page.
  • Center Alignment: The shortcut to implement center alignment is Ctrl+E. This allows the user to align the text to the center of the page.
  • Right Alignment: The shortcut to implement right alignment is Ctrl+R. This allows the user to align the text to the right margins of the page.
  • Justify Alignment: The shortcut to implement Justify alignment is Ctrl+J. This allows the user to align the text to both the margins of the page.

Note: MS Word ensures that the edges of the text lines are the same length by filling up the spaces between the words in the text or paragraph.

There are three ways to change the alignment of the text in MS Access. The first method uses the Justify Text-alignment button on the Home tab.
