How to Print a Word Document Backwards

Using a printer that prints pages right-side up can make collating documents time-consuming. Instead of sorting and shuffling a document's pages to put them in correct order by hand, you can use Microsoft Office Word to print the pages backwards. By printing in reverse order, your pages will come out in the correct order, so you can move on to other tasks.
