Microsoft Word allows you to generate documents in a variety of formats and sizes. You can select from the normal sizes included with Word. Another option is to modify the proportions to meet your specific needs.

A new Word document is created with an A4 page, which measures 8.27 inches by 11.69 inches by default. The A4 size is most commonly used for printing presentations in schools and offices. However, documents can be larger or smaller than A4. In addition, the user may want to adjust the page size of the document for printing purposes.

A unique printer setting can always be used to print on larger paper. However, if your printer does not support this, your only alternative is to modify the page size in Word.

The procedure is straightforward, and you simply need to follow the procedures outlined in our instructions. While working on a Microsoft Word document, you can adjust the size of all the pages. You may want to adjust the size of a certain page within a document at times.

As a result, you can specify a custom page size for:

  • All pages in a document
  • Specific pages in a document

We will show you both the methods.

Let us begin.

 

Method #1: Custom page size for all pages in a document
