Click "File," and then click "Page setup" in the menu. 3. In the Page setup dialog box, choose the orientation you want to use: Portrait or Landscape.
In Google Docs, you can create a new document with either the portrait or the landscape layout. You can even take an existing Google Doc and change the page orientation to landscape. What you cannot do is rotate one page in the middle of the document to landscape if the rest of the pages are in the portrait orientation.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can you write sideways in Google Docs?
Unfortunately, that's not a feature currently available in Docs. If you just need a small amount of text to be vertical, you could create a text box via Insert > Drawing and then rotate the text box in the drawing panel.
Can you make a Google Doc wider?
On your computer, open a document in Google Docs or a spreadsheet in Google Sheets. In the toolbar, click 100%. Choose how big you want your text or enter a number from 50 to 200. In Google Docs, to make the document as wide as the browser window, click Fit.
Which is better Google Docs or Microsoft Word?
One is that you can only change the orientation of the entire document, not set it for individual pages. This is one of the biggest ways that Word wins out in the Google Docs vs. Microsoft Wordargument—you can make one page landscape in Word.
