Join Chris Grover for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing page orientation and size, part of Learning Word 2010.
When you first start Word, you see a page in Portrait Orientation, that is the page…is taller then it is wide. It also comes in the standard page size, 8.5x11.…Now sooner or later, you'll come across a project where you want to change those…settings, and this lesson shows you how. So, if you start off, you've got an empty…page here, a blank page, the bane of writers everywhere.…And to change the page size and the orientation you should go to the Page…Layout tab over here. And then in the Page Setup Group, you see…a lot of things that help you set up the page when you're setting up a new document.…
And orientation is certainly one of the important things, and then size is also…important over here. If you want to get a more complete view…of your page, you can go down here to the Zoom level.…Click on that and you can bring up this Dialog Box, and you see different…percentages of Zoom that you can enter in here.…But if you do Whole page, that automatically sets it so that we can get…a feeling for the size and orientation of our page.…
