How can I get Office 2010 to stop double spacing.

I can't get MicroSoft Office 2010 to stop double spacing. I have gone to the "home" tab and set it as single space and I have a check mark there. Still when I press "enter" I get a paragraph mark at the end of the sentence and a double space.

If I "space" over all the way to the right end of the page, and start to type, the next line will single space.

I don't understand why I can not manually single space. Can anybody help?

Hi Sheila:

If you go to the "Page Layout" tab, there should be a section labelled "Paragraph" where you can adjust indents and spacing. You want to adjust the spacing labelled "After", it is usually defaulted at 10 pt, change that to 0 pt to get the single spacing you are looking for.
