What do you mean by 2 types of page orientation in word processor?

You can print on paper in two ways. They are Portrait and Landscape. Normally we print in Portrait orientation. That is when the page is longer top to bottom than across. It is the way most portrait paintings are, hence the name. Landscape is when the paper is orientated so that it is wider across than it is from top to bottom. That is the way most paintings of landscapes are, hence the name. We normally use portrait orientation for standard documents, like letters. Landscape can be used for things like printing signs.
