Quick Tip for Microsoft Word 2010
Section breaks allow you to make a section of the document different to the rest in terms of its layout. So a section can have:-
- Different margins
- Different orientation
- Different page numbering
- Different headers and footers
You can have as many sections as you like inside a document and they can all have a different layout.

- Click on the Page Layout tab on the ribbon
- Go to the Page Setup group
- Click on the Breaks button
