M.S. Office 2010

Hello
I see where to change spacing fron 1 to 1.5 etc.
However, when I hit enter while finshing a sentence and wanting to go to a new paragraph, also with a single space, it seems to go to two spaces instead of staying with one spce. I can hold the space bar and it will finally end up one space but I knw this is not the way to do it.
Below there are 2 lines of x's as I would like it when I hit enter from the end of A to B, and the third line shows you how word defaults to 2 spaces from the end of B to C . So hoow can I hit enter and keep single spaces?
Please advise, and thanx for the help.

A xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
B xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

C xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

MS Word

Try the following from the tool bar:
Format -> Paragraph -> Line Spacing

I did as you say but when I click"enter" the line drops dwn 2 spaces.
Maybe it is supposed to do that. Try it, please if you have a moment, and let me know. Type 2 lines and in the second line, hit enter and see how many spaces it drops down.
Thank you for your continued cooperation.
Peter

Look for the icon box that says "line spacing" in the Paragraph section, under the "home" tab, then click on it and there's drop down option. The very last one says "remove space after paragraph". Click on that one.
I'm still using Office 2007, but hopefully this is still the same in 2010.
