ARCHIVED: In Microsoft Word, how can I change the paper orientation for individual pages of one document?

In Microsoft Word, you can apply different page orientations to individual pages in a single document. To do so, follow the appropriate instructions below for changing the page setup.

Microsoft Word 2010 and 2007 for Windows

  1. Place the cursor at the beginning of the desired page. To start a new page, from the Insert tab, select Page Break.

  2. In the Page Layout tab, from the Margins drop-down menu, select Custom Margins... .

  3. In the Page Setup window, click the Margins tab. Under "Orientation", change the page orientation to the desired setting (Portrait or Landscape).

  4. Under "Preview", from the drop-down menu next to "Apply to:", select This Point Forward, and then click OK.

This will change the orientation on the current page and all subsequent pages. To change the orientation again, move the cursor to the beginning of the next page and follow the steps above, making sure that in the "Apply to:" field, This Point Forward is selected.
