In Microsoft Word, the default action when pressing the Enter key is to create a new section and not move to the next line. It would be best if you pressed the enter key at the end of a paragraph to separate it from the next paragraph.

To indent the initial line of a paragraph, place your cursor at the beginning of it, and press the tab key. When you press enter to start the next paragraph, the first line will be indented, which permits you to create a new line within a paragraph.

Paragraph spacing is the amount of white space between two sections. Technically, a paragraph in Word is any text that ends as a hard return. You must insert a hard return anytime you press the enter key.

The key that should be pressed for this is enter. Whenever you would like to start a new paragraph in MS Word, you just need to press the “enter” key; the cursor will go to the next line. MS Word is mostly used for creating a lot of documents.

This is the main application that people use whenever they would need to type stories, articles, research papers, reports, and so much more. There are also different applications that are similar to MS Word that people may use, but some say that they still go back to using this app because this still provides the easiest way to type.

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.
