How to Insert Spaces Between Two Words in MS Word

Save

Without spaces between words, reading would become very difficult; words would blend together into one long string of unintelligible letters. By inserting spaces between two words in MS Word, you allow your readers to comprehend your text easily. Even if you simply want to change the visual presentation of the words by placing them farther apart, the space bar can help you achieve your goal. If your document contains a specific word or phrase that appears multiple times and needs an extra space, you can also use Word's Find and Replace function to save time.

Type Spaces Manually

  • Click between the two words. The cursor will appear as a blinking line between the words.

  • Press the Space bar on your keyboard.

  • Press the "Space" bar on your keyboard again, if you want two spaces between the two words.

Use Find and Replace to Insert Spaces

  • Click the Home tab.

  • Click Replace, in the Editing group. The Find and Replace box will pop up.

  • Type the two words that need a space between them in the top field, marked "Find what." Type these words exactly as they appear in the document. For example, if you want to change all instances of the word "allright" to "all right," then type "allright" in this field.

  • Type the two words again in the "Replace with" field, but this time include the space between the words. If you want to change "allright" to "all right," type "all right" in this field.

  • Click the "Replace all" button at the bottom of the Find and Replace box.

  • Click "OK" on the pop-up box explaining that Word has completed the task.

  • Click "Close" at the bottom of the Find and Replace box.
