Inserting Columns in MS Word

Here’s how to make columns in Word.  As usual, there are multiple ways to do anything in a Microsoft program, I’ll be showing you just one of the ways:

1)      Type your text into Word.  Don’t worry that it is initially in a single column format, it is very easy to change it.
2)      Highlight the text that you want to change to two (or more) columns
3)      Select “Format” and then “Columns” from the menu bar:
Word Columns Format Menu
 4)      Select the number of columns you want to have and click “OK”  Note that you can make additional changes such as the width of the columns and the width of the “gutter” or space between the columns.
