MS Word - Spacing between lines

I am using MS Word 2013

While I am writing this about a line, I have the same difficulty from time to time with characters.

I created a line (entered === and hit enter)

I have a very nice line separating my title from my text


Open in new window

My problem is that there is too much space between the title and the text.  When I select the line, there is a lot of space above the ===== part.

How can I adjust the spacing immediately above the line and immediately below the line, so that the line is somewhat skinny compared to the text above and below.  (I tried changing the font size in the line seelcted, but that did not work)

Select all text involved, right click, paragraph.  Change line spacing to single.

You can also select Styles and the Normal Style. Then change line spacing to single and save it. Then your normal style will always be single spaced. I do this and it works.
