Change page orientation of selected page in Word

Listed below are steps to change page orientation for selected page from Portrait to Landscape or vice versa in Word 2016 and 2013. Let us consider the following scenario where you have a document with 4 pages and want to have landscape orientation for page 3 alone.

Step 1: Click the Page Layout menu option in Word 2013.

Step 2: After navigating to Page 2, click the Breaks Option and select Next Page under Section Breaks.


Step 3: Now navigate to the Page 3 and set the Orientation to Landscape by using the Orientation option under Page Setup section.


Step 4: From Page 3 repeat Step 2 to add next page.

Step 5: Now change the page orientation from Landscape to Portrait for Page 4.

By this way, Word 2013 users can change the orientation of specific pages in a document.
