Thumbs up Answer: How do I use double spacing between words instead of one space?

Sure, I can help you with that! To adjust the spacing between words in Microsoft Word, you can follow these steps:
  1. Open your document in Microsoft Word.
  2. Highlight the text you want to adjust the spacing for. If you want to adjust the spacing for the entire document, press "Ctrl" + "A" to select all the text.
  3. Click on the "Home" tab in the ribbon at the top of the screen.
  4. Look for the "Paragraph" section in the ribbon and click on the small arrow in the bottom right corner of the section to open the Paragraph dialog box.
  5. In the Paragraph dialog box, look for the "Spacing" section. Under "Line spacing," select "Double" from the drop-down menu.
  6. Click "OK" to apply the changes.

That's it! Your text should now have double spacing between words. If you want to adjust the spacing for the entire document, make sure to select all the text before following these steps.

You don't -- not in Word.

When you're all done typing, you could use the Replace dialog to
replace one space character with two space characters, and click the
Replace All button. Just don't try to do this more than once, or
you'll wind up with four spaces between words.

It seems likely that the assignment simply wants double spacing --
which refers to the space between lines, not the space between words.

You do that in Format Paragraph.

Thank you for your solution. Just simple use the "replace" function in word to replace one space to double space and everything is ordered
