When you try to print a document in Landscape page orientation from the Microsoft Works Word Processor, the document prints in Portrait page orientation instead.


This issue occurs when the printer driver has been configured to print in Landscape page orientation, but you have not changed the page orientation for the Word Processor document in Microsoft Works. When you change the page orientation in your printer driver, the page orientation of documents in the Works Word Processor does not change.


To resolve this issue, change the page orientation of the Works Word Processor document. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Start the Works Word Processor.
  2. On the File menu, click Page Setup.
  3. On the Source, Size & Orientation tab, click Landscape.
  4. Click OK.
