This applies to Word 2007.
Last week I posted a tip showing how to change the default font for Word and Excel documents. Since then, I’ve been asked how and urged to share how to fix the default paragraph spacing in Word. Currently, the default is to add a space after each paragraph, which nearly none of us are used to.
Here’s how to make it go back to the old way:
- In a new Word document, click on the lower-right corner of the Paragraph section of the Home ribbon.
- Set the spacing parameters as shown below:
- Click the Default… button
- Click Yes.
