    Top line of icons, 6th over with the up/down arrow. Click on it and
    change it to what you want.

    Thanks, but that barely changes the spacing. 1.15 to 1.0.

    How close do you want them? You can't get any closer than 1.0!

    Sounds like you need a word processor with more than the bare essentials
    that WordPad provides; LibreOffice is free ...

    you type "google" in your web browser. At that point type, "How do I
    close the spacing between lines in wordpad" the answer will
    magically appear and you will have a sense of accomplishment that you
    did it yourself as opposed to asking someone to do your work for you.

    I manage to do it in MS Office Word 10 all the time. Unfortunately, I'm
    the road w/o it.

    This is a close example what 1.0 means in WP:

    hello,

    goodbye.

    The same could be said to any enquirer, but some enquirers
    prefer to make enquiries here on Usenet to discuss the issue
    under enquiry. That's what Usenet is for; to discuss things.
    Surely, even arrogant people like you understand that much?

    Hi Bob.
    Bob, have you actually tried to follow your instructions? If you did,
    you would find that changing the line spacing in Word may not a
    straightforward line-spacing procedure as you imply. For example, it may
    NOT ONLY involve adjusting basic line spacing settings in Word, but also
    may require changing the added "paragraph increments that can tend to
    fixate in the mix. If you doubt it, try giving your sarcastic
    instructions to someone else having the same problem, and see if your
    suggestions "cure" the problem.

    Bob, let me suggest that you cram it up your ass. Life's too short for
    sarcastic notes like yours addressed to to someone having problems with
    Word.

    I haven't given any instructions. I didn't ask any questions, either.
    I responded to Satanic Mechanic's sarcastic instruction to Google
    the answer to the enquiry.

    No, I don't want your stupid suggestions, either.

    On the Home tab in the Paragraph section click on the box with the
    small up/down arrows, UNTICK the Add 10pt space after paragraphs.
    Tick the line spacing to suit, 1.0, 1.15, 1.5 or 2

    i concur with some of what you say. a discussion group should be used
    for something obscure or esoteric and not basic bullshit. next
    question will be where is the "any key" and someone will be more than
    happy to explain that there isnt a any key.
    lazy people get even more lazy when someone else does the googling for
    them.

    No, you don't. The OP asked a reasonable question and
    obviously wanted to discuss the issues he was having
    rather than google remedies. You, though, in your sarcastic
    arrogance preferred to denigrate the OP by insinuating he
    was a chimp, or worse, and probably unable to google the
    question and its remedy.

    I've seen quite a few of your sort telling people to google
    for answers to their technical problems rather than discuss
    them on the relevant newsgroups.

    > lazy people get even more lazy when someone else does the googling for

    And what makes you believe the OP is lazy? All he did was
    ask a relevant question on a relevant subject in a relevant
    group in the hope of discussing the subject. If you didn't want
    to answer it you should have just ignored it, not tell him to
    google it. The lazy thing to do would be just to google it rather
    than discuss it with the knowledge base found here.
