Hi, my name is Brian, and this is "how to add line spacing." So, line spacing is the space, horizontally, between lines on a page, and I'm gonna show you how to add line spacing in Microsoft Word. Now, the default for Microsoft Word is single line spacing, which is basically, just like in any book, and a lot of papers and research assignments ask you to do double spacing. So, that's a common request, and I'm gonna show you how to do that on Microsoft Word. I have it open, right here, with just a bunch of dummy text. You can just highlight whatever text you want to space and then go into this drop down menu, right here, which is called line spacing, and in that, you can select one of these quick options. Now, two means double spaced. I'm gonna undo that just to show you something else. you can also click on the drop down menu and go into line spacing options and then you'll have more specific options for you to choose from. For example, you can do line spacing, double, just to make sure that you are actually double spacing it, if the numbers seem too confusing. So, that's it. That is how you line space in Microsoft Word.
