Microsoft Word comes with some integrated page borders that we can use in a very simple way. Most of the page borders that come standard with the Microsoft Office suite word processor are based on a fairly simple and clean design, which will make them look good in most of our documents.
However, we can also turn to the Internet to download a huge number of borders with much more elaborate and daring designs. This makes Word's page borders one of the elements with the greatest potential, but little known to many users.
Use the page borders included with Word
First, we show you how to use the page frames that are included by default in Microsoft Word. These designs are the easiest to use, and we believe they will meet the needs of most users.
To apply a page border to a Microsoft Word document, we have to open it with this word processor. Most page borders are much better in documents that also contain images, since if it is only text they are out of place a bit.
Once the Word document is open, we need to enter the " Design " tab that we find in the top bar of Word. Once inside this tab, many options will have been displayed that we can use to modify the appearance of the document. In this case, we are interested in the option "Page borders " that is located on the right side of the interface.
A new window will open from which we can select all the types of page borders that are included by default in Word.
Word brings four types of page borders that we can use in our documents:
In addition, within each type of sport we can find several options to customize it to the maximum. We find straight edges, broken lines, formed by points and many more. In addition, they can all also be adjusted in a wide range of colors , so that we can give it the appearance that we like the most.
We leave you with some images that you can see how some of the Word page borders that we liked the most are.
Custom page borders
If you don't like the page borders that are included in Word, you can always turn to the Internet to download endless options for all tastes.
Once we've downloaded our custom page border for Word, we're ready to use it. It is as simple as going to the " Insert " tab and adding the image to our text document.
With this, the image will have been inserted into the text document, but we will see that it does not fit into the design. To solve this, we have to double click on the image and in the " Image Tool " tab we select " Adjust text ", and then " Behind the text ".
With this, the frame will have been placed below the text that we have in our Word document. Now we just have to center it on the page and stretch the edges of the image to fit the text.
It's that simple to use page borders in Word.
