Default CHANGE LINE SPACING TO SINGLE

I am wanting to type a lett on a blank document and each time I finish a line
it automatically goes onto double. I want to type in single line and be able
to insert paragraps where needed. This is urgent can you please help me.
Thanks Diane

Default CHANGE LINE SPACING TO SINGLE

How do you "finish" text lines? If you are pressing Enter at the end of each
line, then don't. Instead, let Word wrap the text automatically.

To set the default line spacing and spacing before/after (for the Normal
style of blank documents), you can do the following: In a new, blank
document, press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S. In the Styles pane, click the Manage
Styles button. On the Set Defaults tab, specify the settings that you want.
Select "New documents based on this template" and then click OK. If/when you
are prompted to save the Normal template, choose to do so.
