Default add lines at background

Is there any way I can have Word add lines at background, so the whole
document would look like a note book page.

Default add lines at background

You can insert a table in the header and make the table fill the entire page.
You will then be able to type text in the main body of the document while the
table remains in the background. Horizontal table borders will make up the
lines and the table will repeat on all pages. The procedu

Select View Header and Footer.
While the insertion point is the header, do the following:
1. Insert a text box. Adjust its size to fit the page and remove the border
(via Format Text Box Colors and Lines tab).
2. In the text box, create a 1-column table with 2 rows. Adjust the table
via Table Table Properties as follows:
3. Remove the cell margins (Table tab Options).
4. Adjust the row height to the spacing you want between the lines (Row tab).
5. Remove the left and right border. Make sure the table has a top and
bottom border and a border between the cells (Table tab Borders and
Shading). Close Table Properties.
6. While the insertion marker is in the last table cell, press the Tab key
to add rows until the table fills the page.
7. Close the header/footer area.

You can now type text in the document. Adjust the line spacing so that it
fits the table rows (Format Paragraph Indents and Spacing tab).
