    Highlight the entire document. Then go to the format tab at the top of your page. Click this tab and then select “paragraph”. Next go to spacing (or line spacing )and select “double”.Hope this helps!

    Type your entire document single-spaced first, format everything the way you want it, spell-check it, etc., until you’re sure you’re done.SAVE Your Original Document.Then select all the text (Ctrl+a) then go to Format pulldown menu, then to Paragraph, and change line-spacing box from single to double. Click OK.Do a Save As to save a different version of your document so that if you mess it up in any way hereafter, you can always go back to the Original and start the double-space formatting over again.Then go thru the document and see if you like the way the pages broke up and if not make minor adjustments as you see fit.Word count is available under the Tools Menu.

    If its after you finished writting it then select all, then on the tool bar you click on format, select paragraph, when it opens choose “double” where it says LINE SPACING.For knowing the word count you click on tools and then select “word count”
