Add a Page Border in Microsoft Word 2010
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to show you how to add page borders to a Microsoft 2010 Word document using Hotkey Commands.
The first thing we're going to do is press Alt.
This brings up a selection of letters related to each section.
I need the Page Layout section which is represented by the P key, so if I press P it takes me to the page layout section.
Now I want to access the Page Borders subsection which is represented by the letters P and B.
When we press P and B at the same time, it brings me to this box.
Here we have a selection of borders and we can select the one we like using the directional arrows.
Once we select the one we like we can press Tab. Now we can select the style of line, thicker or thinner. Press tab when you've chosen.
Now we can choose the color.
Press enter when you are done.
We can also choose the width.
We can apply it to the whole document or just a section, such as the first page only or just the highlighted section.
You can have a different color for each section if you'd like.
If we hit enter on Options, it will bring up another box.
We can change the size of the margins here.
There are also other options in the tabs, such as shading.
If we want to shade this we can by pressing tab, select a color.
Once you press enter, you've created a very nice section with blue shading.
If you go back into the Page Border section, you can create a border by going to the Page Border tab.
Hit OK and it will create a border. Now we have a orange border. Now we have created shading and a page border.
If we go back to the Page Border section we can see the other tabs.
Borders represents the text inside, and the page border represents the border around the page. I'm going to remove the shading.
Now I'm going to make a new border to go around the page from the Page Border tab.
Once I press enter it will insert. Now you see we have created a nice border around the page.
This is how to insert a page border or a text border into a Microsoft 2010 Word document using Hotkey Commands.
If you have any questions or suggestions please leave them in the section below.
