Changing Paper Size

You can always change the size of your page from Letter to anything else you can think of. Some countries doesn't use the Letter sizing for their paper, thus you can change the paper size to A4, for example.

To change the paper size, follow these steps:

1. Place the cursor where you want to change the paper size, if you are changing the paper size in the middle of a document.

Otherwise, to change the paper size of the entire document, it doesn't matter where you place the cursor.
2. From the Page Layout Ribbon tab, click the Size button.

5. From the Apply To drop down list, choose one of the following:

"Whole Document" to apply your settings to the entire document.

"This Section" to apply them to a section.

"This Point Forward" to change the paper size for the rest of a document.
