Hi! I'm Tracy Prentiss of Montague, Massachusetts, and I'm going to show you how to make a subscript in Microsoft Word 2007. A subscript is a character that sits below the current line of text, and is smaller than the current line of text. You often see them in chemical symbols, like H2O, a symbol for water. When you type a chemical symbol into Microsoft Word, it does not automatically give you the subscripts that you need. In order to give the 2 the proper formatting in the chemical symbol, I will select it with my mouse to highlight it, on the Home tab of the ribbon in the Font group there is a button for subscript. Clicking on the Subscript button gives the 2 the appropriate formatting. If you accidentally add subscript to a character you didn't mean to, you may select that same character, and use the Subscript button to return it to its normal character size and position. That is how you make a subscript in Word 2007.
