Defining your pages

Before printing your files, you may want to define your page margins and paper size.

Important pointTo define margins:

  • Choose FileactionPage Setup from the menu bar.
  • The Page Setup dialog box appears. It is slightly different in each of the Microsoft Office applications. For now, we will use the Page Setup dialog box in Word.
  • Click the Margins tab and click the top, bottom, left, or right boxes to define the margins.
  • Click the Paper Size tab, and click inside the Paper Size list box to define the paper size.

Important pointTo define paper orientation:

  • Portrait orientation prints text so the page is taller than it is wide.
  • Landscape orientation prints text so the page is wider than it is tall.
  • In Word, this option is available on the Paper Size tab. In Excel, it is on the Page tab. Page Setup is handled a bit differently in PowerPoint and Access.
