How to write a proper name in a paper


In an academic paper, how do I label a proper noun that is the name of a software system?  Do I underline the name or do I put it in quotes?  Do I put the word in italics? Or is it just capiltalized and that's it?

You would capitalize all major words in the name, e.g. Adobe Photoshop, Firefox, Linux, Microsoft Office, Return to Zork, Windows Media Player.
