Microsoft Word is equipped with a tool that allows users to align text vertically and horizontally, giving you complete freedom to determine the position of text in a Word document. Here’s how it all works.
Align text horizontally in Word
Horizontal alignment, also known as centered alignment, places text evenly between the margins on both sides of the page. This tool also allows you to be selective with horizontally aligned text, giving you more control over what you can do with your document.

To align text horizontally on the page, select the text you want to center. Then click the Center Alignment icon in the Paragraph group on the Home tab. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + E.
Your text will now be aligned horizontally. If the text is not yet printed, you can also choose the center alignment option before entering text. It all depends on you.
Align text vertically in Word
As you might have guessed by now, vertical alignment places text evenly between the top and bottom margins of the page. You won’t notice a difference in text alignment if you use it on a page that’s already full of text.
To see the real differences, try turning on horizontal text before typing into your document.
