Microsoft Works is word-processing software you can use to create and modify documents. There are many options to choose from to change the appearance of the text in a document. For example, you can change the font size, bold or italicise font, or add the superscript effect to text. It is easy to add a superscript to your document, and this effect can be useful if you need to include a mathematical or scientific formula in your document.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open Microsoft Works. Highlight the text you want to change to superscript.

  2. 2

    Click "Format" from the menu at the top of the page. A menu will open that gives you several options to format your document, including setting tabs, adding bullets, and modifying font.

  3. 3

    Select "Font" from the list. You can change font style and font colour and add effects to text here.

  4. 4

    Look at the "Effects" section. Check the box next to "Superscript." You can preview how the text will look in the "Sample" box.

  5. 5

    Click "OK." The text you changed to superscript will now be a half-line higher than the other text.

Tips and warnings

  • If you added the superscript effect to the wrong text, simply select "Edit" from the top menu and click "Undo."
