Get There & Work Now!

Get There & Work Now!

So, you’ve read all about MS Word 2000’s Click and Type and you’re ready to give it a try. Let’s get right to business.

The first thing you need to do is to double check that the Click and Type feature is enabled. To check go to the Tools menu, Options choice. On the Edit tab you’re looking for the “Enable click and type” check box.


Make sure it’s checked and click OK.

Next you need to make sure you’re in either the Print Layout or Web view. (These are located in the View menu.)

With those two items taken care of you’re ready to begin.

Move your mouse pointer to a blank area in the document and click once. (Title page you would move to the center of the page, etc…)

You should notice that the pointer changes. One of the following I-beam pointers should appear.


Each pointer indicates the way the text will be formatted when you double-click in that location. Move the pointer to different locations to get different formatting.

When you’ve got the pointer you need, double-click.

Immediately your cursor is placed in the area you chose with the formatting the pointer indicated – no extra Enter keys, tabs or formatting required.

Bet you’re wishing you’d had that one a long time ago! (I know I am.)
