Working With TabsA Tab Stop is a point on the ruler around which or against which text is formatted. When you press the TAB key, you advance the cursor by one tab stop.
Tab stops are set at half-inch intervals on the ruler, but you can change that if you want to.
Microsoft Word help you so that you can also change the type of tab.
By default, tabs are left aligned, which means that when you enter letters after you press the TAB key, the letters move toward the right in the same way that they move toward the right when text is left aligned.
However, Microsoft Word help you in also offering right, center, decimal, and bar tabs.
Notice the symbols on the ruler (where the vertical and horizontal ruler meets at the top left corner) they tell you what type of tab you are dealing with.
The above image is an example of how the different tab settings can be used.
► The Red dotted lines shows the alignment of each tab setting.
► The Green dotted lines shows the margin setting.
You'll notice that the cursor starts at the margin, press TAB on the keyboard to make the cursor jump to the first tab setting.
