How do I put multiple words under a single breve? The program wants to put one word or syllable to one note. I am in Windows, using Finale Make Music.

Do you mean PrintMusic?

You can put multiple syllables under a note by using a hard space to separate them, rather than a normal space. You'll find that in the Lyrics menu.

Sorry for my ignorance, but I do not know what a hard space is. Also, I looked in the Lyrics menu, and do not see "Hard Space" anywhere.

A hard space is a character that inserts a space between words, but does not not advance to the next note, as a regular space does in Finale.
