    Can anyone tell me how to do double line spacing on Microsoft Works using the Word Processor.

    I can't work it out for the life of me

      Hi Elaine,

      I must be going potty. I have tried all the options suggested but when I click on format and paragraph it doesn't give me the option of double spacing.

        Which version of Microsoft Works are you using?

          As a shortcut, does holding the Ctrl key and pressing 2 work?

          If so, Ctrl key and pressing 1 should get you back to single spacing

            Hi Elaine,

            It certainly does. Thanks so much. Have been puzzling over this for a few days on and off.

            Can get on and write Uncle's Eulogy now.

              Hi
              When you have clicked on paragraph does it give two options?
              Line and Page breaks & Indents and spacing. The second gives you the choice for single, double spacing + others. I have Windows XP.

                Hi Moggie,

                No it doesn't, just says indents and spacing but no options to choose double spacing...very strange. I have Windows 8

                  Sometimes they only install Starter Editions on new computers, as a freebie - which may not have all the options that the full version has.

                  I didn't realise that the Ctrl 1 and Ctrl 2 also work with Word - so I've learnt something new today as well!

                      Microsoft Works has been discontinued for sometime as also has the more recent Office Starter. If you want a fully featured word processor without paying Ms's exorbitant price then try Libre Office which is both good and free.
