Summary of this tutorial:

In this video we will show you two plugins we have found for adding the underline and justify buttons.

For adding a plugin you would want to go under Plugins, Add New and from there you will be able to search for plugins by name.

Re-add Text Underline and Justify plugin:
wordpress.org/plugins/re-add-underline-justify/

Once activated you can go under Settings, Writing for configuring the plugin’s settings.

TinyMCE Advanced plugin:
wordpress.org/plugins/tinymce-advanced/

With this plugin you would go under Settings, TinyMCE Advanced to configure the plugin’s settings.

There will be a preview to see the buttons and be able to add them to your editor.

Thanks for this insight although I rather not use plugins for something this simple but it makes it easier in case the client edits the page and lose the formatting.

My favourites way is pressing control + U to underline and control + J to justify 😉
