In Microsoft Word, the pages usually stand vertically. For example, a document's pages might be 8.5 inches wide and 11 inches tall. To turn the document on its side so that it has horizontal pages, you simply need to change the document's orientation. Standard style, called "portrait" orientation, makes your pages vertical. A horizontal page is called "landscape."
Click the "Page Layout" tab on the Ribbon.
Click the "Orientation" icon on the Ribbon. A drop-down menu will appear.
Click the "Landscape" option on the drop-down Orientation menu.
