Click on the File Menu and then on Print Preview. Left click on the 3rd icon from the right. If you are not sure which icon is the right one, hold your cursor over them in turn until you see the "Shrinki to Fit" tooltip.
Word will now shrink all the fonts in the document, hopefully making it fit on one page. It is possible to undo the change but only before you close the document. If the Print Preview toolbar does not appear in the window, right click an empty area to the right of the menus and then left-click on the Print Preview Option.

Installation is simple, although you will need to validate your copy of Office (this tool now works with both Internet Explorer and Firefox). Once installed, it appears as an extra menu in Outlook. Enter the account details as well as the name you want to appear on the emails and Outlook will download the emails. It is possible to set up several accounts.
Click on the Outlook Connector menu and then on Add a New Account. Enter the email address and the password used to access it. It is also a good idea to put your name in the text box below as this is what people will see rather than an address that might not be very descriptive. Click on the OK button and Outlook can now read your Hotmail or Live account.
