Note – before working with Tabs, be sure you can see the ruler.
Go to the View tab, then click Ruler in the Show area if it’s not checked.
Tabs are automatically set at every ½ inch. Setting your own tabs
gives you greater control over your documents.
1. Select the paragraphs where you would like to set a tab (or tabs).
2. Click the Tab box on the left side of the ruler to choose the tab you
need – hover your mouse over the Tab box to see the type of tab
3. Click on the ruler where you would like the tab to go
4. Remove a tab by clicking and dragging it off the ruler. Move a tab
by clicking and dragging it to the new location on the ruler.

Remember – there is always more than one way to accomplish a task – tabs can
also be set through the menus: in the Paragraph group, click the down-pointing
arrow to open the Paragraph dialog box, then click Tabs… at the bottom of that
dialog box to open the Tabs dialog box.
