    Don't really know where this question should be asked but how can I do what the subject line asks?
    I can recall that using a typewriter I would type the word and then back space and hold the shift key and hit the 6 which has (had?) the underline symbol. How can I do it with win98SE or does this require software?
    Someone has asked me this question and I have been meaning to ask you folks. And as usual, TIA.:D

    Thanks for your reply. Do you mean like this ?

    I should have indicated the use of the underline while typing an email or other such document; not just on TSG!! Hope this posts the way I think it will!!:D

    In incredimail, OE, MsWord you can choose B=bold I=italicize U=underline for an individual word or complete paragraphs.
    Does this answer your question?

    Most adequately, thank you. I seldom use OE for emails and did not realize underlining was an option. 95% of my emailing is done through my ISP web mail and I suppose that is not an option that is provided. I do occasionally use hotmail and that may be an option there. Wordpad has this option and I now know how to do that but I did NOT know this until today!!

    BTW, hope you have the happiest Birthday of all tomorrow. Have a few good cyber friends in Washington State---all good people and I know you must be also.

    Going back to the early days of word processors, but it still works, was to hit ctrl B both before and after a word. The same is true for ctrl + I and crtl + U for B=bold I=italicize U=underline

    Those won't apply for when you are using IE because ctrl B brings up bookmarks/favorites as does ctrl I

    NiteHawk thanks for your time. Wouldn't you know it, I only use IE and never knew much about Netscape. That is my loss, I guess.

    Personally, the last Netscape I used was 4.78 which was PRE-AOL owning Netscape. Took a look at 6.0 and didn't like it. Maybe someday I'll look at whatever the "latest and greatest" is at the time.

    I am just NOT an AOL fan. That's about as nice as I can put it. :)
    Every piece of software they have ever acquired they have either bloated, turned into a non stop ad machine, turned into crap, or all of the above.

    Just as an aside, there is serious talk/rumor that Time Warner is about to spin off AOL and then try to unload it. In their case the meeting of new media with old media was a dismal failure.
