Printing More than One Copy

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated January 13, 2014)

Word gives you complete control over how it prints your document. If desired, you can print more than one copy of your document. To print to a file, follow these steps:

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

  3. In the Copies box, indicate the number of copies you want to print.
  4. In the Range box, specify what you want to print.
  5. Check the status of the Collate option. (Select or clear the option based on whether you want the pages of each copy printed in order or not.)
  6. Click on OK.
