You can also change the between Landscape and Portrait mode within the printer settings. Access the printer settings by following the steps below.
Open the Control Panel and then the Devices and Printers option.
Find your printer in the Devices and Printers window and right-click the icon with your mouse.
In the menu that appears, select Printing Preferences and find the option for Orientation in the preferences window.
Change the option to Landscape to set the printer to landscape mode as a default.
Note: If you change the mode through printer settings the printer will use the mode you choose as the default mode. In other words, if you change the printer to landscape mode all programs will print in landscape mode instead of portrait.
