wants to know how to underline name, title etc using my pc

Not much information here, but I assume you are using a word processor such as Microsoft Word or similar. To underline text you simply select the text with your mouse by pointing top the start of the text then holding down the left mouse button and moving the mouse pointer to the end of the text. The selected text should be white on a black background. Then you can press "ctrl-u" - hold down the 'ctrl' key in the bottom left of the keyboard whilst pressing the 'u' key.

This approach work in most applications on Windows that support underlining.
