Your lines in Outlook may not be single-spaced. Here’s how to set the default line spacing to single space if that’s what you want:
- Go to your Inbox.
- Click on the New button in the upper left to start a new email.
- Click on the Format Text tab at the top of your screen.
- You’ll see the buttons are grayed out. Click in the big white box where you’d write the body of your email to activate them.
- Click on the dialog box in the Paragraph group. The dialog box is located in the lower right-hand corner of the group. It looks like a tiny arrow inside a square.
- In the section under “Spacing,” change the “Before” and “After” to zero.
- Change the Line Spacing to Single.
- Click on the Default button at the bottom of the box.
- Click OK in the box that pops up.
- Click OK to get out of the Paragraph dialog box.
Your text should be single-spaced from now on.
