How to Print a Page In Landscape Orientation

By Techwalla Contributor

When you print a document or Web page, it will print in Portrait mode unless you change this selection. Sometimes you want Landscape mode, for example, if you are printing a graph or chart that is wider than the page. This setting can be changed quickly when you go to print your document.

Step 1

Open the document that you would like to print.

Step 2

Click "File" at the top of your screen and click "Page Setup" on the drop-down menu. A new box will appear where you will be able to change the settings of your page. Find the section of this box that says "Orientation." Click on "Landscape Orientation." Make sure that the box next to Landscape has a check or is filled in, showing that it has been selected.

Step 3

Click "OK" to apply the settings to your page. Print your document and it should print in landscape orientation.
