A few days ago I discovered a new shortcut to changing the line spacing in Microsoft Word. This shortcut should work with whatever version of Microsoft Word you own or use. It is very simple. There are a couple of ways that you can do it. First, you can place your mouse pointer at the start of the paragraph that you wish to change line spacing. Let’s say that we currently have single line spacing and we want to change it to double line spacing. After placing your mouse pointer at the beginning of the paragraph, press the “CTRL” key and “2” together. This should change the line spacing from one line to two lines. Another method you can use is by highlighting the text you wish to change and pressing the same key combination. To make text single line spacing press the “CTRL” key and “1”. Try it for yourself…it works! It saves a lot of time by not having to use the menu or toolbars.
