After you draw your line you should hit "Enter". This will leave a hard return so you can get to the line below.

It looks like you might be trying to create a form, but typing multiple underscores is not the way to do that. Instead, create a table and place your text and fields inside the table. That's a much more reliable way of formatting borders in Word. Here's one of my articles that explains the issue: 5 Word Formatting Mistakes - Best Practices

not the cursor below the line - the border below the line
place the cursor on the first line, and select Border UNDER this line

Hi Jskfan


To remove the line: 

On the Home tab, click the arrow next to the Borders and Shading button, and click No Border.


If you still need the horizontal line use table Bottom Border.

If you insert this option, and want to type below this line, double click using your mouse. 

Keyboard Down arrow will not more the cursor below this line.

if I want to write anything under that line, the cursor would not want to move under that line

place cursor at to the very end of the dash "-" or the equal sign "=" line
press Enter and you're on a new line - just type away
