The problem occurs when I hit return key. Apparently, this is a formatting
problem. Within the paragraph, I have double spacing. But when I finish a
paragraph and hit the return key to start a new one, the program
automatically double spaces it, which is not what I want. I want my
paragraphs to be single spaced from each other within the document. How do I
fix this?
Thanks.

Select the double-spaced paragraphs, click on Format | Paragraph
| Indents and Spacing, and set Spacing Before and After to zero.

Select all (Ctrl+A)

Format | Paragraph | Indents and Spacing tab

Set the spacing before and after to 0"

Check the box that says "Don't add a space between paragraphs of the same
style"

Cheers!

If you are using Word 2007, do the following to change the defaults back to
those of Word 2003: First, create a new, blank document. Then, on the Home
tab, click Change Styles | Style Set | Word 2003. Finally, click Change
Styles | Set as Default. If/when you are prompted to save the Normal
template, choose to do so.

You are not getting "double spacing." The default Normal style in Word 2007
has 1.15 line spacing and 10 pts Spacing After. If you want to use the Word
2003 defaults, you can select them instead from Home | Styles | Change
Styles | Style Set.

The problem to which you refer has nothing to do with the operating system
(Windows XP or Windows 7). It's a feature of the default setup of Word
2007. If you want to return it to the default for Word 2003, follow the
steps that Stefan outlined.
