What You Need to Know About Underlines


Q. I use the double underline format in Excel all the time, but I can’t seem to find it in Word. Is it there?

You’ll notice that in the middle of the screen (see screen shot at right) is a pulldown menu at Underline style , and the double underline is one menu choice.
