Changing default paper size of Microsoft Word 2010
A mistake I always tend to do is define the paper size of my writings in Microsoft Word after finishing what I intended to write. I opt to change paper size when I see that the printed papers does not have the actual formatting I had in mind. Changing paper size after the finishing results in me doing touch ups makes again.
I ended up changing the default paper size of Microsoft Word to A4 thereby setting A4 paper size as my document size in all new documents that I would be creating.
Here’s how I did it.
1. In Microsoft Word, go to the ‘Page Layout’ tab.
2. Click ‘Size’ in ‘Page Setup’ group and click ‘More Paper Sizes…’
3. A page setup dialogue box would pop up. In the ‘Paper’ tab, select ‘A4′ under paper sizes (or any other paper size you want it be) and click ‘Set As Default’.
4. A message box would appear asking for confirmation of this change. Click ‘Yes’.
Done. Now in all new word documents, the default paper sizes would be as defined.
