Columns in Word are used in many types of documents, but are most commonly used in newspapers, magazines, academic journals, and newsletters. In this tip you will learn how to insert columns into a document and create column breaks.

Columns in Word

To Add Columns to a Document:

1. Select the text you want to format.

2. Click the Page Layout tab.

3. Click the Columns command. A drop-down menu will appear.

4. Select the number of columns you would like to insert.

If you want to get rid of the columns, just click the Columns command and select One for the number of columns.

Adding Column Breaks in Word

Once you’ve created columns, the text will automatically flow from one column to the next. Sometimes, though, you might want to control exactly where each column begins. You can do this by creating column breaks.

To Add Column Breaks:

1. Place the insertion point where you would like to add the break.

2. Click the Page Layout tab.

3. Click the Breaks command in the Page Setup group. A drop-down menu will appear.

4. Select Column from the list of break types.

5. The text will shift to reflect the column break.
