How to stop automatic second line indent?

I'm trying to write a simple letter in Word 2007. Word automatically
inmdents when wrapping to a second line. I want to STOP the automatic
indent. I know whern I want to indent a line and use the Tab key to do so.

How do I stop Word 2007 from trying to second guess or read my mind? So far
I HATE this software.

Re: How to stop automatic second line indent?

It would appear that the style you're using has a hanging indent. You might
try pressing Ctrl+Shift+T to see if that removes it.

Re: How to stop automatic second line indent?

Thank you. Now, how do I change things so that this is the default?
Everything I used to know and use on Word is now changed or hidden and a
million esoteric choices I never want to make are in the @^%#$! banner taking
up much space on my screen. What "style" does not include the "hanging
indent" and how do I change the font default?

Any good advice will be appreciated.

I'll let those who have experience with Word 2007 answer this, or you might
try looking at what Office Online has to offer in the way of tutorials.

Hi Lobo, goto paragraph, indents and spacing, indentation - change to 'none'
and at the bottom click on default.

Alternatively, press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S to display the Styles pane. Click the
Manage Styles button. In the Manage Styles dialog box, click the Set
Defaults tab, where you can specify paragraph and font defaults in a single
location. Click the "New documents based on this template" radio button and
then click OK.
