How to Change WordPad Margins and Orientation

Here you will find instructions for setting up the WordPad document’s orientation to landscape, as well as how to change margins.

I’m using a Windows 10 computer for this demonstration. Let’s get started.


Press the Windows + R key to open the Run window and type write. Then press Enter.

You can now see the WordPad.

Hit File at the top left.

Under Print, click Page setup.

In the Page Setup pop-up, you will find the Paper section.

If you would like to change the paper size, choose it from the drop-down list next to “Size.”

In the Orientation section, you can choose between “Portrait” and “Landscape.” To make the WordPad landscape, choose the latter. Remember that WordPad’s default orientation is “Portrait.”

In the Margins section, you can set the left, right, top, and bottom margins. Set them how you wish. Take note that the values here represent inches.

In the pop-up, you can also tweak the other options if you’d like.

Hit the OK button.

That’s all.
