    I have Windows 8, and am using WordPad.

    For some reason, it gives me 3 spaces in letter writing, and it comes out of the printer this way. How do you get it to behave in letter writing: Single spaced paragraphs, one line between paragraphs, and it comes out of the printer like it looks in the computer? I haven't been able to find a way to re-set line spacing

    Single spaced paragraph: hold down the Shift key while pressing Enter. WordPad starts the next paragraph immediately after the first, without adding an extra line.

    One line instead of 3: Ctrl+1 Set single line spacing

    In order to change the silly default behavior, you'd have to create a template and open this each time.
