Techi Tip – Left & Right Justification on the same line in Word

I found myself stuck in Word. I needed to both left and right justify a Table of Contents (TOC). It’s another story altogether as to why I needed to manually type a TOC.

If I left justified the TOC, then the page numbers were askew. If I right justified the TOC then the chapter titles… You get my problem.

Solution (after Googling):

  • Left justify the whole document.

  • Create a single “right tab” at the position the right margin tab.

  • At the last position prior to the page number, hit tab and insert the number.

Techi Tip: What should you do when you get a new computer?

First things first, protect your computer.

  • Create a second user ID just in case you get locked out from the first one.

  • Set a System Restore Point on your computer so that if something goes wrong, virus, etc. you can restore your computer to a point when it was working correctly. You can set a restore point monthly or whenever you want.

  • Create a Recovery Drive (thumb) to get on your computer if the system restore point doesn’t work.

All of the links are for Window 10 information. If you are not using Window 10, then Google the key words (second user ID, System Restore Point or Recovery Drive) and follow instructions for your system.

Wipe your snotty nose.

You stink; get your mommy to change your diaper.

If you pull my beard, I’m going to pull your hair.

You’ve been such a naughty kid don’t expect anything for Christmas.

Do you really believe there’s a Santa Claus?

Yeah, I want to hold another screaming or crying kid.

What do I have a sign on me?—Barf on me today!

Keep that sucker in your mouth and don’t touch Santa with sticky hands.

Santa doesn’t want cookies and milk; he wants a ham sandwich and a beer.

 Kid you’ve been eating too many sweets.

Take you finger out of your nose.

No, I don’t want some of your slobbery sucker.

I hope that’s pumpkin on your outfit.

Don’t sneeze!  Don’t sneeze!  Oh, crap!

Why couldn’t I be Mrs. Claus instead of Santa.

Scrooge is beginning to make sense.

When is Christmas over?

Now I know what my wife had to put up with.

Kid, I feel like crying, too.

Quite complaining, at least you have diapers; I have to hold it.
