Tame your computer – now you see it, now you don’t

10 Aug

In Microsoft Word, you can make it easier to read or edit your document by temporarily hiding the white space at the top and bottom of each page. This is particularly helpful if you have been using page breaks and have to scroll large chunks of white space to go to the next page.

Here’s how:

  1. Position your cursor at the top of your document or between two pages and wait for the text Double-click to hide white space to appear.
  2. Double-click.

By the way, any new document will have its white space hidden as well, even if you restart your computer. So at some point you might want to reverse the action … simply position your cursor at the top of your document or on the line separating two pages and double-click as soon as the text Double-click to show white space appears.

* Unless stated otherwise, these tips were written for Microsoft Office 2010.
