Don't you just hate it when you get a brand new computer or piece of software for Christmas? It's just terrible isn't it? You have to read all of those manuals and learn all of that stuff. It gets especially tough when the company that made your new piece of software updates the format or template because you are basically thrown into an unknown land where you have to learn a whole new language. It becomes even bigger of a problem when you have to use that piece of software on a daily basis for school or work. This all pertains to Word 2007. If you have owned a computer or have been involved with technology over the past decade or so, then you can probably relate to where I am coming from. Don't you just miss the old days of window 97? Why did they have to make everything so difficult for us? Its especially difficult for use tech idiots.

I finally figured it out and had such a time that I thought I could help some others out whom are having the same troubles. As it turns out, its pretty simple.
