Permanently change line spacing

How do I change the line spacing to "single" permanently so I don't have to change it every time I open a new document? I have already gone into Change Styles-line spacing-set as default, etc. Nothing is working. Would someone please walk me through this? Thanks

To change all future documents to single space click on the “Line and Paragraph Spacing” button in the “Paragraph” area of the Home tab, and then “Line Spacing Options.” At “Paragraph” window change to “single” spacing and then click on “Set as Default” button at bottom of screen, and then check “All documents based on the Normal template.”
