The Page Orientation determines whether the long edge of the paper is along the bottom/top or along the sides. There are two page orientation options to choose from: portrait or landscape. If you select Portrait (the default option), the long edge of the paper is along the sides; the short edges are along the top and bottom. If you select Landscape, the long edges are along the top and bottom; the short edges are along the sides.
You can easily change between Portrait and Landscape using the steps listed below:
- On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Orientation.
- Click Portrait or Landscape.
Word will automatically change the page orientation of your entire document. In an upcoming tip, I’ll show you how to change the page orientation for a specific section of a document.
