Tip of the Week: Mastering Page Orientation in Microsoft Word

There are times when using Microsoft Word that will require the addition of an outside element, usually something like an Excel sheet, PowerPoint slide or other visual aid. A common issue faced by users is having to significantly alter the size of the external element to fit between the margins of the portrait orientation, ultimately detracting from its impact.

Here is a quick example of an occasion where changing the orientation for a single page in a document might be of value.

Portrait to Landcape

Begin by navigating to the page inside your Microsoft Word document that you would like to change the orientation of. Once there, make sure that your cursor is on the page.

Open the Layout menu and click the button to expand the Page Setup submenu, as seen below.

Open Page Setup Menu

Next select the orientation you desire and select what you’d like it applied to using the drop down menu, as demonstrated. In this case, you’ll select ‘This section’. Click OK.

Switching Menu Orientation
