How to Make One-Page Landscape in Microsoft Word?

The Landscape Orientation is a great way to present information in a wide format, such as charts, tables or images.

Creating a document formatted in Portrait or Landscape Orientation is easy, but what if you only want one-page to be Landscape?

It is possible, but Microsoft Word may not make that a one-click formatting option because it is not very common.

You can create a one-page Landscape in MS Word in two ways: changing the entire page or selecting the entire text of that page before changing it into a Landscape.

This article will walk you through the process of making a one-page Landscape document in Microsoft Word using various methods.

How to Make One-Page Landscape in Microsoft Word?

The Landscape Orientation is generally better when you include charts, graphs and figures as it has more horizontal width than vertical length.

Landscape Orientation comes in handy when working on a lengthy document because it can be difficult to fit everything in Portrait Orientation.

Although Portrait is the default Orientation, any document can be changed to Landscape and vice versa.

Follow these steps to set up a one-page Landscape in MS Word;

  1. Navigate to the desired page you want to set in Landscape Orientation.
  2. Click the cursor at the top of the page where you want to change the Orientation.
  3. Click on the Layout tab in the ribbon bar at the top.
  4. Select Breaks> Next Page in the Section Breaks section. This step is important as this breaks your text and pushes your text onto a new page.
  5. Under Layout tab, Breaks> Next Page in the Section Breaks section

  6. Under the Layout tab, click on Orientation and then Landscape. This will make all of the pages below that one into Landscape.
  7. Set orientation to landscape in Word

  8. Place the cursor on the top of the next page. This will bring the remaining pages back to the Portrait.
  9. Select Breaks> Next Page in the Section Breaks section.
  10. Under the Layout tab, click on Orientation and then Portrait.
  11. Set orientation to portrait in Word

If you follow the above steps correctly and methodically, you will have one Landscape page, and the rest will be in Portrait mode.

The step is similar for all versions of Microsoft Word.
