Typing the Research Paper Text WD 87
To Save a Document
You have performed many tasks while creating the research paper and do not want
to risk losing the work completed thus far. Accordingly, you should save the document. For
a detailed example of the procedure summarized below, refer to pages WD 19 through
WD 21 in Chapter 1.
1 With a USB fl ash drive connected to one of the computer’s USB ports, click the Save button
on the Quick Access Toolbar to display the Save As dialog box.
2 Type Wireless Communications Paper in the File name text box to change the fi le name.
3 Click the Save in box arrow and then click UDISK 2.0 (E:) in the Save in list to select the
USB fl ash drive as the new save location. (Your USB fl ash drive may have a different
name and letter.)
4 Click the Save button in the Save As dialog box to save the document on the USB fl ash
drive with the fi le name, Wireless Communications Paper.
To Display the Rulers
According to the MLA style, the fi rst line of each paragraph in the research paper is to be indented one-half
inch from the left margin. Although you can use a dialog box to indent paragraphs, Word provides a quicker way
through the horizontal ruler . This ruler displays at the top edge of the document window just below the Ribbon.
Word also provides a vertical ruler that displays along the left edge of the Word window. The following step
displays the rulers.
