Word 2007, changing default style: who knew?

Word 2007 double spaces by default.  I wanted to change the default back to single spacing, so on the Home tab, I clicked the No Spacing style, and then the Change Styles drop down, and Set as Default.  Close the document, open a new Word doc……still double spacing!

So after a little research, I learned that this is the way you have to change the default back to single spacing (…or one way, anyway.  You could also change the template file directly, perhaps there are other ways too.)

Use single-spacing with no extra space between paragraphs

  1. On the Home tab, in the Styles group, click Change Styles.
  2. Point to Style Set, and click Word 2003.
  3. If you want all new documents to be spaced this way, click Change Styles again, and then click Set as Default.
