Tip: If you want to convert text from a double space to a single space, the above steps can be reversed. However, instead of selecting "Double" under Line spacing, select "Single."

Additional information

  • See the double space definition for further information and related links.

Method 2 (copied and pasted from​):  

Use the familiar Word 2003 style in working with Word 2007, 2010 and 2013 if you have Classic Menu for Word installed.​

Just take Microsoft Word 2010 for example, which is as well as in Word 2007/2013. With Classic Menu for Word 2007/2010/2013 installed, you can click Menus tab to get back the classic style interface.

  • Select the whole text or a paragraph you want to change
  • Click Menus tab
  • Find out the Double-spacing button in the Toolbars
  • Click the down menu next to the button, choose 2.0 in the drop down menu


If you have not Classic Menu for Word 2007/2010/2013 installed, you can …

  • Select the text you want to modify
  • Click Home tab
  • Go to Paragraph group
  • Click the Double-spacing button



Most simple way: shortcut keys

Select the text you want to double space, and then press Ctrl + 2. You should press both keys at the same time, not Ctrl key firstly and then 2.

Flash drive

1. Alternatively referred to as a USB flash drivedata stickpen drivekeychain drive and thumb drive, a jump drive is a portable drive that is often the 

size of your thumb that connects to the computer USB port. Today, flash drives are available in sizes such as 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, 5GB, and 16GB and are an 

easy way to transfer and store information.

In the picture to the right, is an example of the SanDisk Cruzer Micro 16GB flash drive and a good example of what many flash drives look like. As can be seen in this picture, the drive has a small casing that stores the flash memory connected to a USB connection that is plugged into the USB port on your computer.

Unlike a hard drive the flash drive only contains an integrated circuit memory board capable of storing information and has no movable parts.

How do I use a flash drive?

A flash drive can be used like any drive on your computer. Start by inserting the flash drive into a front or back USB port or to a USB hub. Once connected open My Computer and you should see the drive as "Removeable Disk", "Flash drive", or as the manufacturer's name. Once the drive has been determined you can copy any file you want and paste them into the flash drive or drag-and-drop the files to the flash drive icon.


Save As

Save As is a function similar to the save function that allows a user to specify the name and location of where he or she wishes to save the file before saving it. Often this option is chosen when the user wishes to change the name of the file or make a duplicate of file.
