Viewing Your Entire Document Width

Please Note: This article is written for users of the following Microsoft Word versions: 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. If you are using a later version (Word 2007 or later), this tip may not work for you. For a version of this tip written specifically for later versions of Word, click here: Viewing Your Entire Document Width.

If you are creating wide documents, such as those you will print in landscape mode, then you may find yourself scrolling left and right within your document window all the time. For some people, this can be disturbing. One of the things you might try to overcome this disturbance is the following:

  1. Choose Zoom from the View menu. Word displays the Zoom dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  2. Figure 1. The Zoom dialog box.

  3. Make sure the Page Width radio button is selected.
  4. Click on OK.

These actions cause Word to reduce (or increase) the magnification applied to your document so that the entire width of your document will fit on the screen at once. Depending on your document and the resolution of your monitor, this can be a nice tool to use.
