We know that changing a portrait document into a landscape view is a relatively easy feat. Anyone can do it, and anyone can remember it. Just go to Layout > Orientation > Landscape. Pretty easy, unless if you trying to make a single page be landscape while the rest remains portrait.

While there is no exact feature available in Microsoft Word for this setup, we can still do a workaround to make it happen.

There is a way to make a particular page and even more to appear in a landscape orientation while the rest stays the same. Follow this guide for more details.

Disclaimer: The step-by-step below was based on Microsoft Word 365. Other versions may have a different style and interface but the general guideline should be similar or the same.

1. Launch a Word document. For a wider view, I suggest you to zoom out (Ctrl+Scroll Down), but this is optional.

2. Next, put the cursor to the very end of a page before the page you want to make it landscape. For example, I want to make page 2 landscape, therefore I put the cursor on the very end of page 1.
