How do i get the ruler at the top of the page?

In windows XP, when your in word, there is a ruler on the top of the page that allows you to see it all the time. How do i get that ruler to display in Vista? I need to be able to set up tabs. So for example, to be able to use the TAB button to tab accross, you can put the little black backword "L" type looking markers up in the ruler.
How do i display that type of ruler setting always? And how do i adjust all the margins, and spacing??

What versión of Microsoft Office are you using?.

If you are using Office 2007 you can go to the view menu and then mark the "Ruler" checkbox on the second panel from left to right, that will enable the ruler on the top of the page, if you double click the ruler you can adjust margins and spacing.

hope this helps,

Regards,

Not enough virtual memory


Step 1:
Virtual memory is a portion of your hard drive that Windows sets aside to utilize as memory. When your RAM is over utilized, the operating system can swap pages of data to the hard drive to make more room. Swapping files, or paging, is slow, but it allows your computer to remain functional when your memory space is full. If your virtual memory space, or page file, fills up as well, you'll get an error. Fixing this issue is quick and the process is identical in safe mode or in a typical boot situation.


Change Virtual Memory Settings in Windows XP Click "Start" from the Windows desktop. Right-click "My Computer" and click "Properties." Select the "Advanced" tab and under Performance click "Settings." Select the "Advanced" tab and click "Change" under Virtual Memory. Click "System managed " to allow Windows to automatically adjust your Virtual Memory as needed. Click "Custom " to alter the memory space to your own specifications. Enter a value in MB equal to at least 1.5 times the of your computer's memory for the initial . Enter a value in MB no larger than four times your memory for maximum . Click "OK" and restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

Large space between apps in add/remove programs


Download tweak XP from the net, install it, run it, there is a tab named ADD/REMOVE programs, it DOES NOT add or remove programs, rather, it allows you to edit the Add/Remove program List only, so you should select the "blanks" and remove the from the list. ReClarify: IF you remove an entry from the Add/Remove tab using Tweak XP, It will no longer be available under windows control panel add/remove and if it IS still installed you will NOT have a way to remove the program.

Notepad does not have a ruler.

If your just using Microsoft Windows, without any OFFICE software your going to have a hard time.

What you should be using is wordpad.

Click Start
Click Run
Type in the run box: wordpad
Press ok

Wordpad has margins and center functions.

You may want to consider downloading OpenOffice. Just google it, and install. %100 compatiable with MS Office documents.
