How to Make a Booklet on Microsoft Word 2007

Updated April 17, 2017

Microsoft Office Word 2007, also referred to as Word, is a word processing software application. You can use Word to create documents in any format you want, and you can use templates provided for complex documents. For example, a booklet might contain a title page, a table of contents, a series of chapters with subsections, and an index. You could create a booklet by building each of these elements into a document manually. However, it might be easier to make a booklet in Microsoft Word 2007 using the prebuilt booklet template.

Click Start > Programs > Microsoft Office > Microsoft Office Word 2007. This opens Word.

Click the "Microsoft Office" button, then click "New" in the popup menu. This opens a New Document dialogue box.

Click the "Microsoft Office Online" icon in the left navigation bar of the Open dialogue box. This opens a display of templates available from the Microsoft website.

Type "booklet" in the search box at the top of the templates display, then click the arrow key. This generates a list of booklet templates.

Click to highlight the booklet template you want, then click the "Download" button. This opens and downloads the template and opens it automatically in Word.

Change the title, chapters, subheadings and other items in the template to customise the template for your particular use.
