How's it going, everybody? My name is Jeff, and today I'm going to show you how to make a straight line bigger in Microsoft Word. A straight line feature is really nice for breaking up your text and compartmentalizing things and sometimes you just need a bigger line so I'm going to show you how to do it. So you're going to start with your blank document here and you're going to insert a line first of all so you go down to shape and insert which is under symbol and above text box, click shape and there's all the shapes you can choose from and you're going to choose the line and you're going to do a straight line. Let's just put it right across the document here, boom, that's where you want it. And so you'll then right click and hold control and then click it and you can go down to format shape. Once you hit that, you can first of all change the color which I will do, make it black and make it stick out a little more and then go into weights and arrows and you are going to increase the weight which is essentially increasing like the font size, you are increasing the arrow size. There it's at .2 right now. So I'm going to put it up to 10, let's do that and you can already see right there it gets way bigger. And so you hit okay and look at that. That's a big line, much bigger than the one that we had before. And that's how you make a straight line bigger in Microsoft Word. I'm Jeff and thank you for watching.
