You would think making Word pages both landscape and portrait within the same Document would be as easy as clicking the ‘Orientation’ button on the ‘Page Layout’ tab at the top of Microsoft Word processor.
In reality, however, clicking the ‘Orientation’ button would change all the pages; much to your frustration than doing what you expected. By default, Word document open in portrait mode, but for one reason or the other, you might want the pages to layout in landscape mode.

That is the easy part if you want all pages within the World.doc to be landscape or portrait; uniform orientation.
How to make Word pages both Landscape and Portrait
If you are looking to make some pages portrait and some landscape, the steps given above will not work. To do that, open a new Word document, by default it will be in the portrait mode. You can start by typing the information you want on that page until you reach the bottom of the page, or you can just skip to starting Page 2 at the bottom of the current page.
To insert Page 2, the one you want to be in Landscape mode, go to ‘Page Layout’ tab at the top ribbon on the Word document. Click on ‘Breaks’ button, and then click on the ‘Next page’ option in the drop-down menu that will appear.
Doing that will open a new Page 2 below the current page you are working on. Ensuring that your cursor is on the new page just created, go to the ‘Page Layout,’ click ‘Orientation,’ and click on ‘Landscape.’
