How can I enter a non-breaking space?

Improve the clarity of your text in MS Word

Some of the automatic formatting tools within Word can actually make your documents harder to read, but there's generally a way around it. If you have a date or a name near the end of a line, for example Mr M Gurner or 15th July 1968 then your document will read better if Word keeps it all together on the same line.

This can be achieved using a Non-Breaking Space and these can be entered by holding down Ctrl and Shift when you press the spacebar.
