This effectively marks all pages following the break made in step 2 as landscape. Pages 2, 3, 4, and forward are in landscape mode in our example. Due to the fact that we only want page 2 to display in landscape mode, we will need to revert any forward pages to portrait mode.

4- Beginning your cursor at the top of the next page (in our example, page 3) or on the next page, you wish to remain in portrait mode.

5- Similar to step 2, select “Page Layout” > “Breaks” > “Next Page” to create another section.

6- Under the “Page Layout” tab, click “Orientation” > “Portrait.” This will display the remainder of the document in portrait mode.

That is all! You have created a successful one-page landscape in Microsoft Word.

Extra Tip: If you have a header on your first page and do not want it to appear on the landscape page, you can do the following (after changing the page’s orientation to landscape):

1- On the landscape page, right-click on the header and select “Edit Header.”

2- Un-highlight the “Link to Previous” button.

3- Delete the page’s heading. It should remain on the first page.
