So now my friend these are two ways I am going to tell you and after these you can surely able to make a horizontal line in MS-word file.

First of all the easy way is that you can press the key which normally we say as “UNDER-SCORE”. It is normally used in ids. So press that key as much long as you wants your horizontal line is.

Now the other way is that there is an option of drawing in the upper tabs of ms-word. So you can press that tab and after pressing there is a menu open in front of your screen and then you can see there different shapes so select horizontal line from there and then draw at your main document page by the help of mouse.

Paulsmith,

There are many ways in creating or placing a horizontal line in MS WORD. It also depends on what your MS WORD version is. Here is my way of placing a horizontal line in my document using MS WORD 2007.
 
Step 1:
 
Open document in word, left click INSERT tab, click on SHAPES button.
 
Choose the LINE symbol (view the figures):
 
Open document in word, left click INSERT tab, click on SHAPES button.  Choose the LINE symbol
 
left click INSERT tab, click on SHAPES button.
 
 
Step 2:
 
You will get a crosshair (big plus symbol). Place crosshair where you want to have the horizontal line start, hold down left click and drag across the document releasing on your proposed end. 
 
Do not worry if you release early because the resulting line is still in edit mode when you see green dots on each end of the created line. This will give you the chance to extend, slant, and straighten the line to the desired length. 
 
Step 3:
 
Once desire length is achieved and proper placement is set, you may choose to edit the line color, thickness and substance of the line shape. Move your mouse pointer until it touches the line or a crosshair appears then right click. This will open the FORMAT AUTOSHAPE Dialog box where you can fully edit the line shape.

The easiest way to create a horizontal line using Microsoft Word is by pressing Ok/Enter on your keyboard. After that make three dashes – – – and press Enter. Microsoft office word 2007 will automatically turn the three dashes into a line and will show a Smart Tag Box.

Another option is to:

  • Select the Insert Menu then choose picture.
  • Go to the Auto Shapes.
Select the Insert Menu then choose picture. Go to the Auto Shapes.
  • Select the Line Graphic at the Drawing toolbar. Instead of the pointer a Line Graphic will show that you can move to draw you line with.

Lines can be simply shaped in Microsoft Word and Open Office Writer by using the AutoFormat feature in each of the programs. You can use this shortcut, type three hyphens or other characters and press enter. Example, typing "—" and press enter will create a solid horizontal line or type "===" and press enter will create a double solid line. Another option is, on your menu bar, select Insert and click draw/shape, select the line shape and draw it on the blank doc.
