How to apply the “Shrink to Fit” option in Microsoft Word 2010?


Sometimes a document created in MS Office Word can be a bit longer than you actually required. In that situation, make use of the “Shrink to Fit” option to reduce the length of your document by considerably shrinking the Font size.

2.In the “Choose commands from” drop-down list, select “All Commands.”

3.Scroll through the list until you reach “Shrink One Page,” and then click it.

4.Under “Customize the Ribbon,” click the custom group where you want to add the “Shrink One Page” command.

5.Remember, this command can only be added to custom groups. To add a custom group, click the tab where you want the group to appear and then click “New Group.”

6. If you prefer to add the new group to a new tab, click the “New Tab” button which automatically created a new group to put the “Shrink One Page” command in.

8. Click the “Add” button, and then click “OK.” 9. The “Shrink One Page” command should now be on the ribbon.
