How to make one page landscape in Word

A vertical alignment of documents in Microsoft Word is not always desirable. Therefore, in this article we will show you how to align the document in Word in landscape format, for example, if you want to display longer passages without line breaks. Not infrequently, this procedure is used when there are images in the document. Ultimately, however, there are thousands of examples of use, so we will limit ourselves to how you can use this for yourself. Also we want to show you how to make one page landscape in Word as well.

Make one page landscape in Word – here’s how:

If you follow the usual formatting of Word documents, you have only the choice to display all pages in landscape or portrait format. In order for a single page to appear in landscape format, the document must be divided a little beforehand. This is the only way for Microsoft Word to understand that a separate formatting of individual pages should be done. But don’t worry – it’s not difficult and we’ll explain exactly what to do!

Step-by-step instructions:

So you can change the whole Word document to landscape format:

  • Open the desired document
  • Switch to the “Layout” tab and click on “Orientation”
  • Here you can choose between portrait and landscape orientation
  • Done!

This way you can make a single page in landscape / portrait orientation:

  • First go to the end of the previous page (e.g. if you want page 3 in landscape format, go to the end of page 2)
  • Click in the last line of the page (in this example 2)
  • In the “Layout” tab, click on “Breaks” and select “Next page”
  • Now click on the page you want, go back to the “Layout” tab, click on “Orientation” and set it to landscape format
  • The previous pages are now in portrait format and the page you want (and all following pages) are in landscape format
  • If you want the pages to be in portrait format again, repeat the step with “Layout” and “New page” (in this example on page 3)
  • Done!

In text form, this sounds much more complicated than it actually is. After a first test you will quickly notice how the whole thing works. If you still have some problems, we recommend our video tutorial, because you can follow our steps exactly. And now we wish you a lot of fun with your Word projects!
