I found this steps to change the page width:
In Word 2007 and 2010:

1. Click the Page Layout tab on the Ribbon.
2. Click the little arrow in the lower-right corner of the Page Setup group.
3. Click the Paper tab.
4. Set the paper width.
5. Click OK.

To underline words in word you can use: ctrl-u.  With the extending of the width I guess you mean margins? Here is the official documentation about everything you can do with the margins :) http://office.microsoft.com/en-ca/word-help/change-or-set-page-margins-HP001226492.aspx

No mean like this.

Currently I have to hold the shift and hit the line button on my keyboard like so ________________________________________

Is there any to that word underlined along with rest of the line in an easier fashion.

Thank you.

You can select the word or sentence you want to underline and hit U button.
You can see how it looks like in the image.

Heyas,

None of those worked. Separate query how do you make text float above an underline by a greater margin. I might have a workaround for my issue.

Thank you.

Please try using the Border function. Apply ONLY the bottom border to the PARAGRAPH.

Please note that if you hit Enter on this line, only the second line will have a border, so press eenter FIRST, then return to the original line to add the border.Border functionBorder.docx
