What's an SSD A solid state drive or SSD is a storage device that uses non volatile flash memory along with necessary controller and chipset to store the data. It's somewhat like RAM, but unlike RAM it can store data for a long period of time.

How to Change Measurement Unit of Office 2003, 07 and 10

Ok let's see how to customize the measurement scale. I'm gonna discuss about all the running versions of Microsoft Office.  

For Office 2003 Users:
Open MS Word > Tools Menu > Options > General > Measurement Units > There are 5 options: Inches, Centimeters, Millimeters, Points, Picas > Choose any of them that suits you > Hit OK. 

For Office 2007 Users:
Open MS Word > Hit on the Office Button from top-left corner > Click Word Options Button >  Choose Advanced from left pane > Now scroll down to the Display section > Show measurement in units of: choose any of the units from the drop down box > Hit OK.  

For Office 2010 User: 
Open MS Word > File > Options > Advanced > Scroll down to the Display Section > Choose your desired unit from the drop down box right to the Show measurement in units of > Hit OK
