2. For example, if you would like to keep the first 1 page as it is (Default Size) and want to change the next 3 pages (2nd, 3rd, and 4th pages) are as other sizes. Then click at the beginning of the first line of the 2nd page to start the new section from here.

3. On the Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click on the Breaks, and then select the “Next Page” under the “Section Breaks”.

4. Now, to stop previous page Section Break at the 4th page (Previous Size) or start a new section from the 5th page, click at the beginning of the first line on the 5th page. 

5. Again, go to the Layout tab, click on the Breaks in the Page Setup group, and then select the “Next Page” under “Section Breaks”.

6. To stop previous page Section break at the 7th page (Previous Page Size) or start a new section from the 8th page, click at the beginning of the first line on the 8th page.

7. Again, go to the Layout tab, click on the Breaks in the Page Setup group, and then select the “Next Page” under “Section Breaks”.

8. To change the default page sizes (The default page size in the word is Letter Size) as other pages you want from 2nd to 4th pages, click one of these pages.

Click any page in between 2nd and 4th

9. After that, on the Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click the drop-down arrow of the Size, and then select one of the page size you want (except letter size). For example select “Tabloid”. 

The next section breaks are applied in between the 5th and 7th pages so leave them as the Letter Size pages which are default.

10. If you would like to change the 8th page as default page (Letter size), click the 8th page because you have started the new section here.

11. After that, on the Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click on the drop-down arrow of the Page, and then select “One of the Page Sizes”.

Note:

  1. Never apply the section break to the first page
  2. To stop the previous section to the next pages wherever you want, apply the section break to the next page, rather than the page that you want to stop. For example, to stop at the 7th page, click the 8th page.
  3. To start the new section, apply the section break to the same page except for the first page.
