You can change line spacing in Word by clicking on Format, selecting Paragraph, clicking on the Indents and spacing tab, and adjusting the spacing settings. Whew! That’s a lot of work. There is a better way.
Changing the line spacing in a Word document is very easy if you remember a few keyboard shortcuts:
- Pressing Ctrl+5 changes to 1.5 line spacing
- Pressing Ctrl+2 changes to double line spacing
- Pressing Ctrl+1 will give you single line spacing
If you are using Word for Mac, substitute the Command key for the Ctrl key.
Remember these keyboard shortcuts next time you need to change the line spacing in a Word document you are typing.
