Sometimes you need to print a document in Excel but instead of a vertical orientation, you want your cells to be spread horizontally over your print sheet.
So you need to flip your page sideways somehow and show more cells horizontally on your printed page.
In this easy tutorial I’ll teach you how to print your Excel file horizontally.
Changing the print orientation to horizontal in Excel
Complete the following steps to change the orientation of an Excel document.
1. Click on the
File tab on the top left-hand corner, and afterwards select
2. Click on the button labeled
Portrait Orientation (Note: can be labelled
Landscape Orientation depending on whether or not function has been used previously) and select the setting you want.
Portrait Orientation has more rows but fewer columns, while
Landscape Orientation has more columns but fewer rows.
