How to Make One Page Landscape in Word

It’s a walk in the park converting an entire document to landscape format. However, when it comes to making a one page landscape in Word, it’s a different story altogether. It’s not that straightforward, but thankfully, you can accomplish it in a few steps.

In this guide, we demonstrate how you can pull off making a single page in landscape orientation as the other pages remain in portrait layout. The steps will work on Word 2013 and later versions.

Step 2: Next, click on ‘Layout‘ then click on ‘Breaks
