Switch Between Portrait and Landscape Modes

Summary: View and print your document in portrait or landscape mode.

Many printed documents are designed in portrait mode, allowing more lines of text to appear on the printed page. However, some documents, such as computer code printouts and screen printings, are best done in landscape mode, supporting wider lines.

It’s easy to switch between the two page orientations in Microsoft Word 2007.

1. Click the “View” tab in the ribbon at the top of Word 2007.

2. In the “Page Setup” group, click the “Orientation” command.

3. Choose your desired page orientation from the pop-up that appears.
