Changing the paper size in Word is as easy as visiting the Page Layout tab. But why would you want to change the paper size? Well, if your content isn’t appropriate for the default 8.5” x 11” size, you may want to alter the size to something bigger or smaller. Or, printing requirements may dictate that you only use a certain size of paper.

To change the paper/page size:

  1. From the Page Layout tab, select Size.
  2. In the drop-down menu, choose your desired size.

If you wish to create a custom paper size, select More Paper Size, a dialog box will appear and you can center your desired width and height.
