I used to use columns a lot, but haven't for a few years. I didn't buy Word for my new laptop, as I can just go in the other room and use DH's computer. He has Word 2013, and I can't find a way to do columns. There is no Page Layout tab. I thought maybe the Design tab, but it wasn't there.

I'm hoping someone knows something about that - if it could be hidden, or accessed a different way, or found through options somehow, or done differently.


I should have titled the thread: "Word has no Page Layout tab. Where is It?"

There is an image showing where it should be in Peregrine’s link.

File / Home / insert / Design / Page Layout

Do you see those other tab names I listed?

Yes, but not Page Layout. It is not there.

This is for Word 2010 but it says how to customize tabs, it might help...

Thank you. This helped, and DH's Word now has a "columns" button. Once I saw the box with all the options, I was on familiar ground, but I hadn't been able to find it.



I think when DH first set up Word he took off everything he doesn't use, and that must have included the entire "Page Layout" section.
