When you print a document in Microsoft Word, you can choose from many print options. For example, you can scale a document, print more than one document on a page or change the document orientation. If you want to flip your Word document and print it horizontally instead of vertically, you can do so using the print properties. When you are ready to print your document, if you change the orientation from "Portrait" to "Landscape," your document will print horizontally.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click the Office button and select "Print." The Print dialogue window will open.

  2. 2

    Click the "Properties" button to view printing options for your document. You can change the paper size, print quality and document orientation here.

  3. 3

    Click the arrow under "Orientation," select "Landscape" and click "OK."

  4. 4

    Click "OK" to begin printing the document. The text on your document will print horizontally instead of vertically.
