Hi. My name is Dave Andrews. Today I'm going to show you how to make table borders solid in Microsoft Word. Let's open up Word, by going to our Start menu. We're going to go to All Programs, Microsoft Office. Let's just pick Word. Now, I'm going to insert a table into my document by going to the Insert Tab. And under table, I'm just going to drop a two by two table into my document. Now the way that I make these borders solid, I'm going to expand this a little bit, is by going to the borders and shading. The way that we do that, is we go to the design tab somewhere inside of our table, and under table styles on the borders, we can basically choose how we want our borders to appear. Like if I uncheck the top border, as you can see this top border on this table cell right here has just disappeared. So I'm going to recheck that top border, and it will appear again. To make all of the border solid, just select all borders and everything in your table will be drawn with a solid line here. If you want to turn off borders completely, just select no border and for the cell that I'm in, all of the left, right, top and bottom borders have been turned completely off. You can also put a vertical border inside of your table, as well as a diagonal border that will dissect, rather bisect your table cell into two pieces diagonally. My name is Dave Andrews, and I've just showed you how to make table borders solid in Microsoft Word.
