How to Remove Column Format in Word 2007

Word 2007 offers two ways to remove a column format: you can return to Single Column mode to remove a column format from only part of your document, or you can remove columns from the entire document.

Return to Single Column mode

This technique stops the page format from including columns, and returns you to standard one-column text in your Word 2007 document.

  1. Place the insertion pointer where you want your columns to stop.

  2. Click the Page Layout tab.

  3. From the Page Setup group, choose Columns→More Columns.

  4. In the Columns dialog box, choose One from the Presets area.

  5. From the Apply To drop-down list, select This Point Forward.

  6. Click OK.

    The columns stop, and regular, one-column text is restored.

Remove columns from a document

This technique brings your Word 2007 document back to the default one-column format.

  1. Place the insertion pointer anywhere in your document.

  2. Click the Page Layout tab.

  3. From the Page Setup group, choose Columns→More Columns.

  4. In the Columns dialog box, choose One from the Presets area.

  5. From the Apply To drop-down list, select Whole Document.

  6. Click OK.

Remember that removing columns from a document doesn’t remove any section breaks; you have to manually delete them.
