Chapter 9. Creating and Editing Word Documents > Adding Text Where You Want It

Adding Text Where You Want It

When you work in Word, you use the cursor to determine where the text you type will be entered in the document. The cursor is the flashing vertical bar that you see just to the right of the text you type. You can think of the cursor as the insertion point for text—in other words, the place in the document where text will be entered when you type or insert text from the Clipboard.

Positioning the cursor is easy: Just use the arrow keys and the Page Up and Page Down keys on the keyboard to move the cursor into position. Or you can use the scrollbars at the edges of Word’s window to find the place where you want the text inserted. Then just put the pointer over the location and click to place the cursor there.
