Steps to Make One Page Landscape in Word

  1. Place your cursor at the very beginning of the page that you would like to flip to the landscape. (We work with page 2 in our example)
  2. Select “Layout”  or “Page Layout” > “Breaks” > “Next Page” to create a section.

What this actually does is mark all pages after the break you made in step 2 as landscape. In our example, pages 2, 3, 4, and forward are in the landscape. Since we only want page 2 to display in the landscape, we will need to change any forward pages back to the portrait.

4. Place your cursor on at the beginning of the next page (page 3 in our example) or the next page you wish to remain in portrait.

5. Select “Page Layout” > “Breaks” > “Next Page” just like in step 2 to create another section.

Extra Tip: If you have a header on your first page and don’t want it to be on the landscape page, you can do this (after making the page landscape):

  1. Right-click on the header on the landscape page and select “Edit Header
  2. Click the “Link to Previous” button so that it is no longer highlighted.
  3. Delete the heading for that page. It should remain on page 1.
