Here's how to add double spacing to a Microsoft Word document's line spacing:
Open the Word document in which you desire double space between lines. Go to the Home tab and click on the Paragraph group. In the Paragraph dialog box, under Space, select Double. Click OK to apply your changes.
To double-space just within a certain paragraph, use the Insert > Text Formatting command. Click on Space Between Words, and then click the down arrow next to Double.
In Microsoft Word, click on the required text, then pick "Alignment and Spacing" from the formatting palette, and then find "Line Spacing" to choose single, one and a half, or double spacing. This will give you identical paragraph formats for each type of spacing.
