    I'm asking for a friend. Where do you go to make a document double spaced? It is in XP. Thanks.

    Yes. I'm assuming it is the word processing package that standardly comes with the XP.
    She is a newbie and I assumed it was Word. Thanks!

    Don't know about Word - but in Works:

    Format,Paragraph,Spacing

    I would imagine something similiar in Word

    Highlight the text

    Ctrl - 1 for 1 line (ie normal)
    Ctrl - 2 for double
    Ctrl - 0 for 1.5

    thanks everyone.
    she couldn't find the format, etc.

    so I'll have her try the Control 2.
    Is it Control 2 or Control - 2.
    (the dash mark was only for ease of reading?)
    thanks!

    Word doesn't come in Windows XP. Not surprising. Microsoft just wants to milk its customers for all they've got. Also, the word processor in Works is kind of a scaled-down version of Word.

    if its the absoulte default from XP, with nothing else installed then they are using word pad and there is no option (well I can't see it)

    Thanks everyone. I think that should do it - I'll be back if it doesn't work and I'll refer my friend to this web site. I got more help here than from the microsoft web page.

    My kids are in high school. They needed to use double line spacing for some homework. I found a nice free ware program for them to use. http://www.abisource.com/

    It worked for me
