You should ask what they mean by "extra hard return". It is an "extra"
hard-return, which is possible, or an "extra-hard" return which at least to
me is meaningless.
A Hard Return is entered by pressing Return.
A Soft Return is entered by pressint CTRL-Return.
You've also not given any indication of the version of your OS or the rev of
Office, or Word, or anything else for that matter.

You do indeed need to check what it is that you're being asked to achieve.
My guess is that he/she/they want double spacing--i.e. a blank line between
*every* line of text--in the printed copy you submit, so as to leave plenty
of space for the marker's corrections, comments, etc.. If so, before
printing that final copy, select the entire document (Ctrl+A) and then use
Format > Paragraph > Indents and Spacing and set the line spacing drop-down
Note (1): No doubt there's an equivalent--and supposedly more
intuitive--procedure if, God help you, you're using the latest, menuless,
version of Word. But damned if I know what that might be.
Note (2): Word's footnote handling can get pretty buggy with double spacing
applied to a document. If your document contains long footnotes you'd
probably do well to set that drop-down to 1.5 line spacing... I doubt if the
marker will notice the difference.
