3 columns: one wide column of text and the side margins are columns
One column: a normal, wide, single column of text
There are no columns on a regular document
How do you set 4 columns if the option isn’t on the Columns button list?
Layout Ribbon, Columns, click “More Columns” and type “4” in the number of columns box
Just use 3 columns because 4 would be too narrow and look silly
Set tabs to create the look of 4 columns

To make a document look more interesting
To have fun and experiment with the column settings
