MS Word Tip: Adjust Your Document's Line Spacing

Older versions of Word buried line-spacing settings, but in Word 2007 and 2010, they're hiding in plain sight

You wouldn't believe how often I get the same few questions about Microsoft Word. Perhaps the most common: "How do I change the line spacing?"

I can understand the confusion. In Word 2003 and earlier, the line-spacing settings were tucked away inside a formatting menu. But if you use Word 2007 or 2010, you'll be pleasantly surprised to find a line-spacing control right on the Ribbon.

Rather than my usual step-by-step instructions, I thought I'd share this informative video on changing line spacing in Microsoft Word. (Although the video specifically calls out Word 2007, the steps are the same for Word 2010.)

You know what they say: a tutorial video is worth a thousand words. Or something like that.
