Why does pressing enter skip a line, and how to change it?

So in every other program, and older versions of word, you pressed enter and
it went to the next line. Now, it goes two lines down! How do you turn this
feature off, and, for those who maybe might have the in, why on earth is this
feature here? All this crap about trying to make things easier for you
really makes it a lot tougher, and really, can anyone not spare the time to
press enter once?

Apparently you have it set for a wider paragraph spacing than what you want.
Did you look at your settings?

If you want Word to use single spacing as the default in version 2007:
On the Page Layout tab, click Paragraph.
Click the Indents and Spacing tab.
In the Spacing section, click the arrow net to the After box until the value
is 0 pt.
In the Line Spacing box, select Single.
Clear the nmber in the At box.
Click Default.
Click Yes when prompted.

Thanks Carol

I'm using a school computer and they must have set up the defaults
differently. Sometimes they aren't changeable...

Actually, MS Word 2007 ships with the default line spacing set that way and I
believe the default font is Callibri.

You should also check to make sure that the space before and after your
paragraph is set to zero, as JoAnne suggests.
