Microsoft Word is the go-to software for desktop writers. Whether it’s an office project, a homework assignment or simply notes, MS word has stood the test of time and become the best app for notes. The software has branched out to smartphones as well and the app is introduced with much success in smartphones.

You can use any editing skills and format the body of your piece according to your needs. If you need to start a new paragraph, all you need to do is press enter key. It will automatically start a new paragraph. The number of times you press it, the greater the spacing between the two paragraphs will be.

No matter if you are writing an essay, story or other type of writing in Microsoft Word, you may want to start a new paragraph at some point. This is quite easy. At the end of a paragraph, you will need to push the enter key. This will cause the cursor to move to the next line. In most cases, you will want to put a blank line in between the two paragraphs. In this case, you will need to push the enter key twice.

Sometimes, people will type their document in Microsoft Word, they want to keep their paragraphs flush along the left margin. However, some prefer to have indented paragraphs. To do this, after you press enter, you will need to push the tab button.
