Modifying Page Layout

In Word page layout can affect how content looks in documents. When using Word paper size and page margins can be easily changed.

The Page Setup dialog box

Previously, we showed you how to open the Page Setup dialog box from the Margins drop-down menu. As you become more familiar with Word, you may find that you want to use the Page Setup dialog box more often to fine tune the page margins and adjust other settings. To get there more quickly, you can use a shortcut that's conveniently located on the Page Layout tab.

To open the Page Setup dialog box:

  1. Click the Page Layout tab.
  2. Click the small arrow in the bottom-right corner of the Page Setup group. The Page Setup dialog box will appear.
