Using Word to type anywhere on a page

Microsoft Word allows you to easily start typing anywhere on a page and I must admit it’s a simple tip I forget to use myself. Firstly be sure you are in Print Layout mode (click the View Menu and then click the Print Layout icon). The beauty of this function is that you don’t have to start at the top of the page or put in any blank lines if for example you want to start typing at the bottom of the page – instead Word will automatically fill in the space above the cursor with blank lines.

The key to getting it to work easily is to move your mouse to where you want to type, then holding the mouse still and ensuring you see the I-beam before you click the left mouse button. You can then easily start typing at the position where you have clicked.
