Word: Print Last Page First or Reverse Order

Posted October 16, 2006 by MickeyMouse in Microsoft Word

In my inkjet printer, each new printed page is placed on the last printed page. Therefore, the last printed page is always on top. For a long document, it takes a while to re-sort and place the first page first. This tutorial explains how you can get Microsoft Word to reverse the print order and save all the trouble of sorting.


I have spent so much time resorting documents after printing. On my printer, the last page printed is always on top. By printing the last page first (reverse order), the document is already correctly sorted.

Here is how to do it:

1. Open Microsoft Word.
2. Open the document to be printed.
3. Click the Tools menu.
4. Select Options.
5. Click the Print tab.
6. Check the Reverse Print Order option.
7. Select OK.

Now, all your documents will print in reverse order. What a lifesaver!
