Left align, left alignment, or left justify is text or page formatting that aligns text along the left side of a page or containing element. This text has a ragged right edge because it is left-aligned instead of being right aligned.
In the United States and other English speaking countries, all text editors and word processors are set to be left-aligned because they read left to right. Other languages that read right to left have right-aligned text.
Note: The above two paragraphs are left aligned inside the text container and are an example of left alignment. If you're viewing this page on a big screen there may be a lot of extra white space before the text. Even with the white space the text is still left aligned. As mentioned above
