The printing order typically starts from page 1 and proceeds up to the last page. Printed papers that emerge from the printer come out with the last page on top and the first page at the bottom of the pile. If your document had only about 5-10 pages, sorting them manually—to bring page one on the top—is no major task.
Now, instead of a few pages, what if your document was actually a book with a few hundred pages?
After you have printed all the pages, sorting them to bring page 1 on the top could soon become a tedious exercise.
Well, the solution is very simple—why not start the printing process beginning with the last page and finish with page one?
The process is termed printing in reverse order, and the printer you are using may allow doing so because of a built-in functionality.
However, all printers may not possess that facility, so you can set up Microsoft Word to do that for you.
We will guide you through the process of printing your Word document in reverse order following a few simple steps. In fact, you can do that in two ways.
- Set Word to print in reverse order by default.
- Reverse print the document using custom print options.
