Indenting in Word, after the Document is written

1
Click on the “Page Layout” tab, at the top of the Ribbon in Microsoft Word.

2
Go to the section that is headed “Indents” and “Spacing”. Click on the little arrow in the bottom right-hand corner. This arrow opens up the Paragraph Dialog Box.

3
Look for the heading “Indentations” in the Paragraph Dialog Box. In this section, there is a drop-down box with the heading “Special:”. Click on the drop-down box and select the “First line” option.

4
Choose the amount you want the lines indented by, in the “By:” box. Here, 0.63 cm was chosen, because this is a commonly accepted indent size.

5
When a new paragraph was started, Word automatically indented the first line.
Click on “OK”, and continue typing. Now, Word will automatically indent the first line every time you press Enter.

Note: I used the steps above, but to add or change indents after the doc is written, select all, and then follow steps above,
