You will start by turning the page so it is wider than it is tall. In other words, you will
change the document’s orientation .
Changing Page Orientation
Portrait orientation , with the page taller than it is wide, is the default page orientation for
Word documents because it is the orientation most commonly used for letters, reports,
and other formal documents. However, Andrew wants to format the author fl yer in
landscape orientation —that is, with the page turned so it is wider than it is tall to better
accommodate the photo. You can accomplish this task by using the Orientation button
located on the Page Layout tab on the Ribbon. After you change the page orientation, you
will select narrower margins so you can maximize the amount of color on the page.
To change the page orientation:
1. Click the Page Layout tab. The Ribbon changes to display options for formatting
the overall layout of text and images in the document.
2. In the Page Setup group, click the Orientation button, and then click Landscape
on the menu. The document changes to landscape orientation, with the page
wider than it is tall.
3. In the Page Setup group, click the Margins button, and then click the Narrow
option on the menu. The margins shrink from 1 inch to .5 inch on all four sides.
See Figure 1-21.
