Printing More than One Copy

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated October 3, 2015)

Word gives you complete control over how it prints your document. If desired, you can print more than one copy of your document. To print multiple copies, follow these steps if you are using Word 2007:

  1. Press Ctrl+P. Word displays the Print dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  2. Figure 1. The Print dialog box.

  3. In the Copies box, indicate the number of copies you want to print.
  4. In the Range box, specify what you want to print.
  5. Check the status of the Collate option. (Select or clear the option based on whether you want the pages of each copy printed in order or not.)
  6. Click on OK.

If you are using Word 2010 or Word 2013, then the steps are a bit different:

  1. Press Ctrl+P. Word displays the print options on the File tab of the ribbon.
  2. In the Copies box (just to the right of the Print button) indicate the number of copies you want to print.
  3. Using the controls under the Settings label, specify other way in which you want this printing to occur, such as what you want to print and how you want it printed.
  4. Click on Print.
