Solo Tip Tuesday: Print Out a Word Document in Double Spacing in Just Three Clicks

by Reba Nance on November 20, 2012

Most of the documents we generate are single-spaced, but it’s nice to print out a copy in double spacing if you want to easily read it or make notes or corrections. It’s a hassle to change the spacing in the format just to print out one copy. Here’s the answer:

  1. Have the document open. Save it, if you haven’t already.
  2. Press [Ctrl] and [A] at the same time. This will highlight your entire document.
  3. Press [Ctrl] and [2] at the same time. This changes the document to double spacing.
  4. Press [Ctrl] and [P] together to print your document.
  5. Close your document WITHOUT SAVING THE CHANGES. This ensures your document retains the original single spacing.
