How to Use the Calendar Wizard
...create a free 2013 calendar the easy way!

Users of previous versions of Microsoft Word may prefer to use the familiar calendar wizard instead of selecting and modifying a template.

The wizard allows you to select one of three designs, the page orientation, and whether to allow room for a 7.5" x 3.5" picture.

I think the designs are a bit outdated, but the advantage to using the wizard is that you can select any month(s) of any year. So if you want to build calendars for the next 100 years, you can do it with a few clicks!

Creating a basic Microsoft Word Calendar

What you need to complete this tutorial:

  • Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010
  • Heavy (minimum 32 lb.) printer paper such as Hewlett-Packard Presentation paper or HammerMill Laser Gloss paper
  • Laser or inkjet printer

Open Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010, then follow these steps:

  1. In Word 2007, click the Office button, or in Word 2010, click the File tab.
  2. Click New.
  3. In the template list, click Calendars.
  4. Choose Other Calendars.

    Selecting 'Other Calendars'
  5. Select Calendar Wizard from the list.
    Selecting the Wizard
  6. Click Download. (If a message appears asking for permission to authenticate your copy of Microsoft Word, click Yes.)

The wizard opens immediately so you can build your calendar.

Note: I personally never select "Allow Room for a Picture" because a clipart picture is inserted into each page of the document.

If you want room for a picture but don't want to use the ugly default image, go through each page, click on the picture, press Delete, then insert your own images.

Press Ctrl+S to save your calendar. It is now ready to print, or go to
